Sunday, September 18 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT

Through the Doctrine of Discovery, federal laws and forced removal, European settlers began a colonization of Indigenous bodies. Learn about the connection between settler land acquisition and the ongoing Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives (MMIR) epidemic from Callum Cintron, WE’s Human Rights Coordinator. We will then welcome Shannon CrossBear, WE’s Interdependence Coordinator, who will discuss Indigenous perspectives on land, interdependence and MMIR
