Theme-based training events
PAN worked with Cree Two-Spirit community organizer, researcher and educator Harlan Pruden on Two-Spirit Reconcilation.

This event was recorded and sessions are now available for viewing on demand, along with a selection of resources focused on harm reduction, peers, frontline service providers, and research.
