Walking Our Talk: Everyday Decolonizing

We were pleased to support this virtual training to discuss approaches to building decolonization ethics into our everyday practices in non-profit and community-based work. Dr. Shauneen Pete and Nikki Sanchez encouraged us to see how we could strengthen our approaches to standing against colonialism in our work. These discussions offered essential insights and skills for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants.
