    North End Community Health Centre (NECHC), located in K’jipuktuk, Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people, would like to recognize Transgender Day of Remembrance #tdor2020

    NECHC would like to pay tribute and honour the lives lost due to anti-transgender hatred and prejudice this year. 350 transgender and gender diverse people were killed in 2020 so far. It should be noted that Transgender women who are Black Indigenous People of Colour (BIPOC) have the highest rates of victimization and death within this community. This year saw the highest loss of transgender and gender diverse lives with the majority (98%) being BIPOC transgender women or transgender feminine people. This does not capture an accurate number of transgender and gender diverse people killed due to how data is collected around the world, and because of the misgendering of people by family, friends, media, and authorities when reporting deaths. Many of these victims’ cases also go unsolved.

    The NECHC wants to acknowledge these catastrophic realities first by naming them. As a health centre we want to acknowledge the harm that has and continues to take place towards the two-spirit, transgender and gender diverse communities through the medical models that exist.

    Through the NECHC’s Social Justice Committee formed a committee that specifically works on two-spirit, transgender and gender diverse care, gender affirming care, and inclusion within our organization. As part of this work we have been in ongoing conversations, and trainings with Pride Health, and other educational resources. These committees are committed to advancing the NECHC’s journey to provide the best possible care to two-spirit, transgender and gender diverse clients.

    On this sombre day of Transgender Day of Remembrance the NECHC want the two-spirit, transgender and gender diverse communities to know that our committees are working diligently to advance our health centre to be an organization that can consistently, appropriately, inclusively, and safely provide health care as well as gender affirming care to two-spirit, transgender and gender diverse clients. No one should face discrimination or barriers to accessing health care for being who they are. We want to be a health centre that can be a place where two-spirit, transgender and gender diverse people can get all the care they need in a timely, respectful, informative, and affirming manner.

    To the two-spirit, transgender and gender diverse community, we see you, we hear your struggles and injustices. We also know how strong and resilient you are. It is hoped that one day we will live in a world where accessing gender affirming health care, and health care as a two-spirit, transgender and gender diverse person will be as prioritized as any other form of care.

    • 2 jalapenos
    • 1 lb lean ground chicken or turkey
    • 1 tsp ground cumin
    • 1 tsp chili powder
    • ¼ tsp coriander
    • ¼ tsp dried oregano
    • ½ tsp salt and black pepper
    • ½ cup fresh or frozen sweet corn

    • 2 tbsp honey
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • ½ cup milk
    • ½ cup pumpkin puree
    • ½ cup whole wheat flour
    • ½ cup medium-grind yellow cornmeal

    • ¼ tsp salt

    For garnish (optional):
    • jalapeño slices
    • avocado or guacamole
    • cilantro
    • Greek yogurt/sour cream
    • salsa/hot sauce
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 375 °F.
    2. Add ½ cup of the drained white beans to a blender or food processor along with 1 cup broth. Blend until well combined. Set aside.
    3. Heat olive oil in a deep 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add onions, garlic and one diced jalapeno (seeds removed). Sauté for 3-5 minutes until onions are tender. Add in the ground chicken/turkey, break up the meat and cook until no longer pink.
    4. Stir in the cumin, chili powder, coriander and oregano. Add salt and pepper to taste then reduce heat to low. Next, stir in the corn, cilantro, pureed beans and remaining whole white beans and gently simmer together for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside while you make the cornbread topping.
    5. To make the cornbread topping: in a large bowl, whisk the egg, honey, oil, milk and pumpkin puree together until well combined. Stir in the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Pour cornbread topping over the chili mixture and spread evenly towards the edges of the skillet.
    6. Top the batter with a few slices of jalapeño. Bake for 25-30 minutes until cornbread is slightly golden brown on the edges and filling is bubbling.

    Optional: serve with guacamole, cilantro, sour cream, Greek yogurt or hot sauce.
