BeCause & Effect #101: Brandy Blind

Children, Youth & Families

This week on the BeCause & Effect podcast, guest host Shauna Turnley has a conversation with Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata’s Family Group Conferencing Team Lead, Brandy Blind.

Shauna and Nolan connected with Brandy and Ma Mawi recently to create a video about Family Group Conferencing, or FGC, for a Winnipeg Foundation event. You can watch the video below.

In this episode, Brandy shares her healing journey from being a community member who originally used Ma Mawi’s services, to leading FGC – which was gifted to Ma Mawi by the Māori people of New Zealand. Brandy speaks about what she has overcome, the incredible impact of the FGC program in Manitoba, and what our city still needs to do to help reunite families with kids in the child welfare system.
