Facilitator: Jo Chrona


In these sessions, we briefly examine: 

  • The difference between “not being racist” and “being anti-racist”
  • What it can mean to unpack our biases and move from fear to growth 
  • How we can understand the role of privilege in anti-racism work 
  • In becoming anti-racist, how we move from fear to growth 
  • “Racial gaslighting” and how we avoid perpetuating this 

As we respond to the Recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, we continue to engage in challenging conversations about Indigenous-specific systemic racism and also discuss: 

  • What Indigenous-specific racism looks like in our education systems 
  • How we disrupt what is not working to ensure a responsive system for Indigenous learners 

Our next steps in our learning to help create an education system that effectively responds to Indigenous learners, families and communities.
