Today is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
We encourage all SIU of Canada Members to educate themselves on issues facing the indigenous community and reflect on how we can do better. We also wanted to share a list of resources regarding Canada’s first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation prepared by Canadian Roots Exchange(CRE), Canada’s largest Indigenous youth led organization.
Together, we can all be an ally to Canada’s indigenous peoples.
