On June 28, members of the UM community virtually came together to collectively reflect on the recent recovery of children’s graves in Residential Schools across the country and the anti-Muslim tragedy in London, Ontario with the overarching purpose of recommitting to counter all forms of racism, including anti-Black and anti-Asian racism.
During the event titled ‘Bettering our land: A call to action against injustice,’ attendees heard from each speaker’s unique personal connection to these devastating issues and truly showed that no one remains unimpacted by these matters. Students, faculty, support staff, administration, and Indigenous Elders shared their own aspirations and call to actions to move the community towards a better direction.
