Panel aims to continue conversations on injustices faced by Indigenous peoples – Brock News

An upcoming online panel intends to continue the process of decolonization and reconciliation by remembering the horrors of the past for more than one day a year.

After the Brock community participated in Orange Shirt Day and the University hosted a talk on the need to deliver equitable services to Indigenous children, youth and families in September, the Brock Decolonization Committee plans to make the historic and current injustices experienced by Indigenous children an ongoing discussion.

As a first step towards this goal, the committee will host the Intergenerational Impacts and Activist Responses online panel to discuss the legacy of residential schools as well as current discriminatory practices towards Indigenous children.

Held Friday, Oct. 30 from noon to 1 p.m., the virtual event will include several speakers from the Brock community.
