It is vital to provide space for Indigenous voices and to amplify those voices. Please see the statement from our Indigenous Solidarity Working Group on the mass grave site found at the Kamloops Indian Residential School. This is an ongoing reminder of the colonial project on Turtle Island.
As non-Indigenous allies, our executive committee voted to donate $500 to the residential school survivor society to contribute to the healing Indigenous folks right now. This organization provides many services to the community including counseling services.
