Social and environment justice activist Brigette DePape is in Yellowknife April 4 to 6 for a public speaking event and skills development training to help citizens challenge government action through creative grassroots movements.
Ms. DePape will present her perspectives on activism—New Ways to Stimulate Change and Social Engagement—and lead discussion.

The events are being organized by the Council of Canadians NWT Chapter and the Dechinta Centre for Research and Learning.
Ms. DePape came to national prominence as a Senate page in 2011, when she stood in protest during the Throne Speech, silently holding up a sign that said “Stop Harper!” She contributes to the hard-hitting political website ShitHarperDid, is a leader in PowerShift and a skills promoter through Beautiful Trouble.
