Online (and at your venue), March-April 2017
In late March/early April 2017, a book club for people anywhere to explore non-Indigenous practices of working in support of Indigenous people is kicking off. Based on the book Decolonizing Solidarity: Dilemmas and directions for supporters of Indigenous struggles, the book club is for anyone who wants to process the book’s insights and discuss how they could be put into practice.
The book club is both online and face-to-face. So you can participate as an individual online, or by organising a book club in your workplace or with friends, relations or other networks. If you are interested to find out more and get updates, please sign up here http://decolonizingsolidarity.org/book-club/
Organised by Clare Land (author of Decolonizing Solidarity), Holly Hammond, Director of Plan to Win (a social movement learning organisation), and Pru Gell (Indigenous rights solidarity activist, facilitator, educator).
