Canadian Federation of Students – RISE Summit: Registration open now
From Canadian Federation of Students:
Students at post-secondary institutions across Canada have been at the forefront of organizing against racism and colonialism on their university and college campuses, as well as in their communities, for decades.
From September 29 to October 1, the Federation will be hosting the second national Racialized and Indigenous Student Experience Summit (RISE) in Toronto. For more information and registration forms, click on the link below.
This Summit will be an opportunity for student activists to gather, share stories of success and struggle, to nurture each other and heal together.
Spaces at the Summit are limited and open only to the participation of racialized and Indigenous identified people, with special consideration for participants from traditionally marginalized communities, such as those who identify as womyn and/or trans* and/or non-binary and/or gender non-conforming and/or queer and/or with (dis)abilities.
The UWSA will send four delegates. Potential delegates should email firstname.lastname@example.org regarding interest, including their self-identification as racialized and/or Indigenous, students living w/disabilities, LGBTTQ2S*, women, student parent; and specify whether they have attended a CFS summit/meeting in the past.
Students must send interest to email@example.com by September 12, 4:00 p.m.
Delegates will be selected by an ad-hoc committee and confirmed by the UWSA Board of Directors. Students can also apply to attend RISE through their academic departments or decide to register themselves and pay their own registration fees. The registration fee is $400. The UWSA will still need to sign off on registrations.
