Wrestling with the Truth of Colonization

In 2021 we will be facilitating decolonization workshops led by Indigenous leaders and elders. Participants will wrestle with the role settler people and institutions play in maintaining systems that disadvantage Indigenous people.   

Institutional Relationship Building

We are developing relationships with diverse organizations. As we reorganize, we are identifying leaders who wish to participate in the alliance. With this base we will hire a lead organizer in fall 2021.
