Congratulations to Peter Corren Award Winners at the 20th Annual Breaking the Silence Conference in March.
Anthony Bidulka and Herb McFaullwere the powerhouses behind bringing Camp fYrefly to Saskatchewan.
Now in its 9th year, Camp fYrefly Saskatchewan's mission is to help sexual and gender minority youth move from being “at risk" to a place of resilience and strength. For the last five years because of their generosity, the camp is free for all high school students.
Fran Forsbergwas also honoured for her unrelenting advocacy for young people. Fran has fostered over 150 children. She is a passionate and effective activist and mum on issues of gender freedom and young people.
Kay Williams, who presented Fran with her award said we would need to stay up all night to list Fran's accomplishments. Kay said of Fran and I quote, “This award speaks to her amazing ability to provide a listening ear to people's pain and needs. But Fran goes further: she acts to alleviate the pain."
Congratulations to Tony, Herb and Fran. They have made the world a better place for all young people.
