*Please note that some sessions may deal with difficult content, including the unjust treatment of Indigenous Peoples in Canada, racial discrimination and violence, systemic injustice, sexual harassment and/or violence, and the disproportionate effects of inequality. This content, while necessary to discuss, may demand (significant) emotional labour, distress, or trigger participants. We encourage participants to guide their own engagement according to their mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Participants are also encouraged to seek additional support to process their feelings and thoughts in a safe space.

All events will be held online with Zoom. Closed captions in English will be available at all sessions.
