First Call Fundraising Gala with Keynote Speaker Michael Redhead Champagne
First Call Fundraising Gala with keynote speaker Michael Redhead Champagne

You are invited to join First Call on the evening of February 28, 2019, and enjoy words from Michael Redhead Champagne, accomplished speaker and an award-winning community organizer, public speaker, and a proud member of Shamattawa First Nation.

Michael grew up in and around the child and family services system, living through the suicides of many people he cared about, gang violence directed at himself and his peers, and the lack of opportunity for youth growing up in similar circumstances. This led to the founding of AYO! (Aboriginal Youth Opportunities) in 2010. This volunteer youth movement that exists to uplift urban Indigenous youth, and provide them a platform to share their gifts with the world.

He has received a multitude of awards for his courageous advocacy and organizing, including the 2017 Govenor Generals Meritoris Service Decoration recipient for Outstanding Indigenous Leadership.

Katie Hyslop, distinguished journalist with the Tyee, will receive the Champion of Child and Youth Rights Award for her extensive work on B.C. education, foster care, Indigenous issues, housing and poverty.

Our annual fundraising galas are an occasion to celebrate our child and youth advocacy as well as to raise much-needed funds to ensure we can continue to put BC's children and youth first.

We hope you will join us for an evening of good food, good company and the inspiration Michael will share from his lived experiences, courageous advocacy, and healing messages.
