Shared Experiences

“I'm a white, straight, male with the privilege of having no history of violence in my family. I didn't think I'd feel belonging in this course, but this might be one of the most impactful learning experiences I could have done, for my family, as a father, and as an ally who never asked myself who I am, or where I come from.”

Aaron Lambie, CEO of Nisto, a social impact reporting platform

“I really appreciated how the truth about colonization and MMIWG2S+ was shared. As a person who lived along the Highway of Tears, I was personally affected by the issue. All the time suggested for reflection felt good. I bookmarked all of the resources from this course and have already been using them in conversations with my friends. ”
