After a very public resignation from the Terrace city council board, @Jessica McCallum-Miller - Indigenous Advocate asked herself if she was going to “continue on with a broken spirit and stay quiet” about the systemic racism and sexism she had experienced as a public figure, or speak out and share her story with the public.
McCallum Miller was recently awarded the Lieutenant Governor's Medal for Inclusion, Democracy and Reconciliation from Coast Mountain College. The award is meaningful to her because it means “Indigenous people have a seat at the table, and it means that we are heard when we have a seat at the table."
