You’re invited! Join IRIS and its partners for Solidarity Symposium: Understanding Oppressions, Imagining a New World.

This free one-day Solidarity Symposium will take place on Monday, December 4, 2017 in Ottawa at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health (299 Montreal Road). The event will bring together Indigenous, migrant peoples and people with disabilities to unite for change. These people are some of the most marginalized in Canada in terms of experiencing poor health care, a lack of access to employment, education, housing and worst of all – violence. Together, we will talk about the commonalities and distinctiveness of these experiences of oppression to re-think our strategies and change the trajectory.

The Solidarity Symposium is a part of IRIS’s national project, The Working Together Initiative: Combating Structural Violence against Indigenous, Racialized, Migrant Women and Women with the Label of Intellectual or Psychiatric Disabilities.
