Public Event: "What Does Reconciliation Mean To Me?"
Thursday, June 4th
from 5:00 - 7:00 pm
via Zoom, register for free at Eventbrite

Join us for conversation and dialogue "What does Reconciliation mean to me" hosted by Tools For Social Work students, Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary, in partnership with community social worker for Marlborough. Everyone is welcome!

Five years ago the Truth and Reconciliation released its final report least we forget. The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls also released their final report.

Right now there is unpresented movement uniting the struggle for justice. Yes, the world is in turmoil because we saw exactly what white supremacy looks like. We can no longer look away. So if we are no longer comfortable with the status quo, we step in. We can think critically how the roots of white supremacy and colonialism are linked in Canadian history. Each of us can reflect what our call of action is - not just in June but every single day.
