Truth & Reconciliation 5th Anniversary Online Book Club Series - RISE - Reconciliation in Solidarity Edmonton

6:00 PM – 7:00 PM


Join RISE - Reconciliation in Solidarity Edmonton and fellow community members to review, explore and discuss "Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future", to commemorate the 5 year anniversary of the 2015 release of the TRC Report and Calls to Action. 

This five-part series will guide participants through selections and meaningful dialogue each week on topics past and future, arguably more pronounced and pressing now under pandemic circumstances than they were 5 years ago. Indigenous and non-Indigenous people are both welcome. 

Please register individually for each session you can attend. The link to the meeting will be emailed apart from the registration confirmation just prior to the event each week. Feel free to join the meeting 15 minutes prior to the session. 

Assigned readings for each week are listed below and the report can be accessed here. For mental health support, RISE recommends Hope for Wellness.
