Decolonize YQR: A Deeper Look into The REDress Project & MMIWG with Jaime Black
Reconciliation Regina has partnered with the Regina Public Library to host the Decolonize YQR, a speaker workshop series will take participants through a journey of self-reflection and will explore the history and impacts of colonization and ways we can decolonize our hearts, minds, and community.
Join us on October 24th at 7pm as Jaime discusses her infamous REDress Project and how current realities motivated her to create this awareness piece that provokes action for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit (MMIWG2S).
The programming will be offered remotely through Zoom.
There is no cost to participate.
