Join us for a gathering of Indigenous and/or Black health practitioners, researchers and learners.

March 25, 2020
5:30–8:30 p.m. (ET)
Location: TBC
Toronto, ON

Note: Registration is required for this free event. TOPHC 2020 registration is not required.

Indigenous and/or Black practitioners, researchers and learners have identified the need for knowledge exchange, support and network development that speaks to their unique experiences of settler colonialism and/or anti-Blackness in the context of health practice.

This gathering will provide an exclusive, brave space for Indigenous and/or Black Peoples to speak their realities; share their expertise, hopes and aspirations; and create opportunities for solidarity and support. This gathering will provide a forum for dialogue responsive to the needs of participants.

Building on two successful gatherings of Indigenous Peoples and Black Peoples held in Toronto and Ottawa and work on Black resistance in health, this gathering will feature leading voices in Black-Indigenous solidarities.

Specifically, it will:

  • explore the complexities and possibilities of Black and Indigenous solidarities; and
  • provide space for relationship building, peer support and mentorship.
