Dr. Valle-Castro presents on the importance of understanding "social justice" through an anti-colonial lens.
About this event
Today, social justice too often fails to reflect the Indigenous community’s experiences and needs.
Ultimately, reimagining social justice requires a post-colonial foundation, that incorporates decolonization, Aboriginal worldviews, and self-determination. One must also LISTEN AND LEARN about , and from Indigenous communities and discover what barriers exist to full and meaningful participation AND then there must be a commitment to change structures and change the culture so that is safe and inclusive for everyone.
Dr. Valle-Castro (she/her, they/them) is originally from Chile and has Mestiza (Spanish-Italian and Afro-Indigenous) background. She holds a PhD in Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice from the University of British Columbia and a master's degree in Women’s and Gender Studies from the same university. Manuela is the Director of Social Accountability at the University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine.
