JUSTICE FOR COLTEN: OPEN LETTER FROM INDIGENOUS FACULTY AND ALLIES

Posted on February 16th, 2018

Open Letter

To Presidents of Canadian post-secondary institutions,

We the undersigned extend this letter to Universities Canada (especially to the presidents of the institutions they represent), urging  your commitment and support in the wake of the trial of Gerald Stanley.

We call upon you to take appropriate measures to ensure that Indigenous students, faculty and staff are safe now and in the future. Such measures include increasing the anti-racist and decolonial education of all faculty, staff and students in all areas of professional change.

This urgent need has also been noted by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples and the United Nation Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and several justice inquiries.
