UWinnipeg launches course exploring calls to social justice

October 27, 2020
The University of Winnipeg has developed a special topics course called 231 Calls to Social Justice: Developing Community Based Responses to Systems Impacting Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA Persons. The course will be led by Sandra Delaronde, a member of UWinnipeg’s Indigenous Advisory Circle. “The university is quite ahead of the curve taking this as a current issue and creating a chance for students to learn something that is going to support them and allow them to apply their learning in the real world,” said Delaronde. The course will explore the history behind the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, with required readings such as the Final Report of the National Inquiry, Aboriginal Justice Inquiry, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
