At this free, online meet-up we will learn more about the current water situation in Indigenous communities. Then we will write our own letters to send to the Prime Minister to tell him that we want clean drinking water for all Canadians to be a priority.
I am organizing this to hold myself accountable to writing this letter. I hate to admit it – but I have never actually written a physical letter to any Prime Minister about anything, ever. And I thought that there are probably others in the same situation. We really mean to, but we don’t know where to start, and life gets busy and we don’t get around to writing that letter. My thinking was that if I organize this and we all get together to do this, we will definitely do it. To help us, I have put together a template for the letter that everyone can pick and choose wording from. I have the address we need to send it to – and you don’t even need a stamp! We will figure this out together.
This will be an amazing lesson for all the kids about the truth that the Prime Minister actually works for us – we have the power to tell him what we think his government should be working on. And if enough of us use our voices to say that we want clean drinking water for all Indigenous communities, he will listen.
And, I think this will be even more powerful if these letters are written in the kids’ handwriting – and they can even draw a picture in their letter. I can’t wait to see what words these awesome kids choose and what their final letters look like.
