Series Overview:

Anti-Racism, Anti-Colonization and Social Justice is an experiential and relational learning series. We focus on Indigenous and intercultural exchange, knowledge sharing, the critical retelling of “his”story, learning/unlearning, accountability and relationships. The purpose and goals are as follows:

  • Mobilizing actions to address and interrupt white privilege and other forms of oppression through learning/unlearning, building relationships of trust and accountability, and solidarity.

  • Enhancing solidarity, learning/unlearning, support and strategic alliances among Indigenous and racialized people.

  • Building bridges and strengthening our goals as (informed and trusted) allies in creating and anti-oppressive society

  • Influencing collective action through an intersectional (race, class, culture, gender/gender and sexual identity, all-abilities, faith etc.) framework.
