Advocating for the truth
Facilitate open public dialogue about truth, reconciliation and the recognition of Indigenous peoples’ human rights.
Complete an institution-wide study, and publish a public report of the findings, that identifies UBC’s participation in the implementation of Crown colonial policies.
Develop a communications strategy to ensure that every current and prospective student, faculty, staff member and partner of the university is aware of the unceded status of the lands on which UBC facilities are situated and the enduring relationship between Indigenous peoples and their territories.
Provide free and publicly accessible educational tools, events and resources that promote the local and global implementation of Indigenous peoples’ human rights, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action and the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls’ Calls for Justice.
Establish a multi-disciplinary advisory group of Indigenous women and Indigenous 2SLGBTQQIA* people to oversee public dialogue at the university regarding the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls’ Calls for Justice.
Take a stronger stance in how we approach and advocate for more systematic change beyond just the UBC community.”
