UWSA Stands in Solidarity with Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc First Nation
The University of Winnipeg Student’s Association (UWSA) represents students at the University of Winnipeg, and recognizes the genocidal acts committed by Canada against Indigenous peoples and the legacy of residential schools as outlined in the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 2015.
The discovery of 215 children’s remains in an unmarked mass grave at Kamloops Residential School in British Columbia has devastated University of Winnipeg students. The UWSA stands in solidarity with Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc First Nation, and all Indigenous Peoples.
The University of Winnipeg has lowered its flags for the week of May 31-June 6, and the UWSA remains dedicated to Reconciliation and Decolonization including action, education, and collaboration through its current Truth and Growth campaign.
For students seeking support, a complete list of campus, municipal, provincial, and federal mental health resources can be found on the UWSA website, and online counselling is available for students through Mind Beacon.
