TruthsGiving: Intergenerational Indigenous Women on Violence Then and Now

Please join us for this event focussing on the voices and experiences of Native American women.
Native American women are confronting historical and contemporary violence. Addressing the toxic legacy of colonialism, fighting for eco-justice, and speaking out about health inequalities including violence are all inter-related. Speakers will discuss the impacts of violence on their lives and their activism, whether it is historic violence, violence against the Earth, or the high rates of violence and murder suffered by Native women, in the context of a widespread epidemic of femicide, sexual violence, and online violence against women. Leading youth speakers include Samantha Maltais and Kisha James. Outcomes focus on action supporting Indigenous-led initiatives.
