  • The Calls to Action are not a checklist, but even if they were, not many have been crossed off since 2015. As indicated in the title of the panel, we can take direct strides both individually and structurally, towards reparations, healing and meaningful change beyond the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Join us for a powerful conversation on what it means to truly reconcile, build good relations, and make space for collective healing, reclamation and reparations.
