In April, our CPT Canada Coordinator, Rachelle Friesen, hosted a live webinar on settler colonialism. In it, Rachelle shared her experiences of living in Palestine and on Turtle Island and used maps, stories, and political theory to help us unpack what the structure of settler colonialism looks like and how we can resist against it.
This month, on August 27th, at 7pm EST, we will be holding a screening of this webinar, and Rachelle will host a Q&A discussion afterwards. We hope to see you there!
