Social Justice Days 2018: Community conversation with Chelsea Vowel

Undoing Harm: Surviving White Supremacy in Quebec by Taking Care of Each Other
Centre Culturel Georges-Vanier
2450 Workman
(Metro Lionel-Groulx)

This event is part of the event series Social Justice Days, presented by QPIRG-McGill. For additional information, visit the main facebook event here:

How can we apply the lens of harm reduction to the pain caused by white supremacy? How can we begin to support each other to better reduce the impact of this harm on our lives? How can Indigenous and Black communities collaborate meaningfully to move forward together? What would we say to each other if whiteness wasn’t in the room?

The Black Indigenous Harm Reduction Alliance invites you to join us for a discussion on these questions with author Chelsea Vowel. Chelsea, Robyn Maynard, and Lindsay Nixon will talk about their recent work and what inspired them to write, as well as where they hope conversations about white supremacy, Black and Indigenous identities, and collaborations between these communities will go next. Afterwards the discussion will open up to the room, to invite the experiences and knowledge of those in attendance into the conversation. Our goal is not to propose definitive answers to these huge questions, but rather to begin to build the necessary trust for Black and Indigenous peoples to grapple with complex issues that affect us outside of the white gaze.

**This is a closed event for Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour.**
