Team Education at Brookfield

Jer’s Vision has recently started a GSA outreach program and the Brookfield High School Diversity club is one our 2 pilot clubs! For the past month, our coordinator Lindsay has been working with the club to increase the scope of their activities and the groups they reach out too. Today, Kate was kind enough to venture to Brookfield to present a decolonization workshop to the Diversity club and a neighbouring history class. The presentation covered defining colonization, the legacy of residential schools, systems of abuse, stereotypes of Aboriginal peoples and cultural appropriation. The workshop was well received and we hope we can continue to battle various forms of oppression in schools.

Sincerely,
