On August 9, 2016, a young Cree man named Colten Boushie died from a gunshot to the back of his head after entering Gerald Stanley’s rural property with his friends. The jury’s subsequent acquittal of Stanley captured international attention, raising questions about racism embedded within Canada’s legal system and propelling Colten’s family to national and international stages in their pursuit of justice. Sensitively directed by Tasha Hubbard, nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up weaves a profound narrative encompassing the filmmaker’s own adoption, the stark history of colonialism on the Prairies, and a vision of a future where Indigenous children can live safely on their homelands.
Every year, Lethbridge and area community members come together to write letters on behalf of prisoners of conscience from all over the world. We supply everything you need - paper, pens and postage - we just need you to come and write the letters! Never written a letter like this before? No problem, we can help!
Highway Cleanup is our annual fundraiser that helps pay for stamps, letter writing supplies, and fund events throughout the year. Join us to help Amnesty Lethbridge clean up Alberta Highways and support our group in sending hundreds of letters around the world every year!
