The Intersectionality and Truth and Reconciliation committee seeks to fulfill the following objectives of our Constitution:
- To actively and clearly acknowledge our work occurs on the traditional (and often unceded) territories of Indigenous Nations, and to adopt the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action.
- To adopt a stance of intersectionality in our work, acknowledging that identities (such as gender, race, class, sexual orientation, etc.) often interact and intersect in our lives and in our society in ways that make persons and organizations simultaneously experience privilege and oppression. We aim to actively see our struggle in the struggle of other oppressed groups and to work towards a culture that creates safer spaces for all and a healthier society.
