Social Justice Week: Decolonizing and Transforming Social Justice

Every year, Ryerson University’s Social Justice Week kicks off with the first day dedicated to Indigenous justice. The first day of the 2016 Social Justice Week was dedicated to Indigenous Sovereignty and Solidarity. This event included an annual Truth and Reconciliation (TRC) ‘check-in’ to discuss the recommendations and explore what has been done so far. There was also a panel featuring Joanna Dallaire & Denise O’Neil Green, Athena Pheasant, and Duncan McCue; a rally and march; a sharing circle for Indigenous students, faculty, and staff; a talking circle open to all; and an ancestors potluck feast.
