ConnectR launched a Reconciliation Challenge on June 21 and we now have 390 people using the website to choose calls to action and fulfill that work, each week for 8 weeks. Part of the Challenge includes Zoom Conversations--and you can participate even if you're not on the Challenge!

On Wed, Aug 12 from 3 - 4pm (CST) 29 we'll host a Q & A with Jesse Thistle as part of our conversation! Jesse Thistle is a Métis-Cree-Scot Ph.D. Candidate in the History program at York University in Toronto, as well as an award-winning author and highly accomplished speaker. His academic work focuses on theories of intergenerational and historic trauma of the Métis people. This work, which involves reflections on his own previous struggles with addiction and homelessness, has been recognized as having a wide impact on both the scholarly community and the greater public.
