Community Guidelines

  • What is shared is in confidence. We trust each other not to share beyond the space

  • Speak from the “I" 

  • Check in with each other

  • Trust in testimony

  • Center the knowledge and protocols of the land we are on

  • Validate the slowness, care, and kindness this kind of learning requires form everyone

  • Boundary setting: Annie will be a mediator as we slowly set personal parameters

 

Collective Learning Goals

  • Come up with tangible ways of mobilizing where we can support each other and not just have a conversation

  • Unlearn pan Indigeneity, model minority myth, and white supremacist values

  • Learn through story telling 

  • Accessing and honouring knowledge in a way that is reciprocal, intentional, and not extractive  

  • How can we share futurism? Imagine and dream collectively? 

  • Acknowledge the distinct and incomparable historical and ongoing harms experience by the Chinese and Indigenous communities without centering trauma
