We acknowledge, affirm and witness that we are settlers on unceded algonquin territory. Our workshops, presentations and events take place on land that we reside on as visitors, guests and settlers. We thank you for allowing us to be guests on your land. Thank you.

Holding our trans and gender diverse communities in thought - we send love, care, honor and pay respect to those who came before us, to those who are not with us today and to those who will follow us into the future. It is our gender diverse beings who have set up the road map, guidance and grounding which enables B.E.C.K. to be able to work and speak in public spaces. We thank you.
