MUNalum 101: Social Justice

Monday, Feb. 20, 1-2 p.m.

Online

In recent years there has been increased attention paid to issues of equity, inclusivity, diversity, Indigenization and anti-racism and the claim to honour social justice in Canada.

Yet inequity still plagues our society, with institutions and violent injustices continuing against Indigenous, racialized, gendered, sexualized and disabled people.

On World Day of Social Justice, join Memorial’s interim associate vice-president (Indigenous research), Dr. Paul Banahene Adjei, as he invites us to critically rethink what it means to build a just and inclusive society that equally values multiple perspectives.

Dr. Adjei will provide examples from his research on race, Indigenization and anti-colonialism to explain how an inclusive and a just society may require changing the conversation and reimagining the fight against social justice.
