REGIONAL GATHERINGS:

Gatherings are a great way for groups to come together and share ideas, resources, and hear from the Stephen Lewis Foundation and our community-based partners.
 4Gs are part of Ontarion South and West Ontario. We were honoured to be the host group in the fall of 2014. (See some photos.)  and look forward to  this year's Gathering hosted by Grandmothers of Steel.
