Learning the Dance: Community Making a Difference

Looking After Each Other: A dignity promotion project is a diverse group of Manitobans who have come together to talk about the relationship between stigma and FASD. Their vision is a province where people with FASD and women who have used alcohol during pregnancy are fully accepted and their dignity is protected. One way they are promoting dignity is the development of a series of mini documentaries.
