Ubuntu - Mobilizing Central Alberta
The philosophy of Ubuntu guides us – “We are all connected.
What affects one affects us all.”
Mobilizing Central Alberta in creating justice and equality for all. To promote
full and equitable participation of individuals and communities of all origins.
In the spirit of respect, reciprocity, truth and reconciliation, as immigrant settlers to Central Alberta, UBUNTU – Mobilizing Central Alberta, honours and acknowledges Treaty 7 and Treaty 6 regions. This area is the traditional territory of the Niisitapi (Blackfoot), (including the Siksika, the Piikuni, and the Kainai Peoples), the Tsuut’ina, Stoney Nakoda, Cree, Saulteaux and Métis peoples.
Community Capacity Building
Our work is grounded in spreading the message of UBUNTU – Mobilizing Central Alberta: Compassion, Humanity & Harmony. We are committed to a deep sense of interconnectedness and mutuality that changes attitudes and behaviors. We believe in radical inclusivity. We believe our work and efforts, through education, advocacy, and community building, has the power to address the prejudice at the root of our histories where it lives – in the hearts and minds of people.
