September 30, 2022 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The day honours the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.
On September 30th, CNAR will offer the opportunity to view Harmony Johnson’s discussion on Developing a Shared Language, which was a keynote discussion at CNAR 2021. During her presentation, Harmony unpacked and discussed the key terms as related to truth and reconciliation, in order to develop a shared language and meaning that equips the partnered work of reconciliation moving forward. Please check https://www.cnar-rcor.ca/ to view this special replay, free of charge, on September 30th. CNAR wishes to thank Harmony for allowing CNAR to share this discussion with our community and further our learning.
