Reconciliation, Decolonization, Indigenization discussed during Access to Justice Week

Posted on Updated on

By Cheryl Giesbrecht, CLASSIC Student Manager

Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) started out Access to Justice Week with a Volunteer Appreciation Event!  As one of PBSC’s community partners, the Community Legal Assistance Services for Saskatoon Inner City Inc (CLASSIC) teamed up with them to present a vital question for consideration by volunteers and others at the College as they enjoyed their coffee and candy: What do the words Decolonization, Reconciliation, and Indigenization mean to you, both professionally and in your personal life?  The posterboard also travelled up to Professor Sarah Buhler’s Access to Justice class, and spent some time in the hallways and lawby of the College throughout the week.  It was understandably difficult for many students to reduce their thoughts to the size of a stickie note, and so many interesting conversations took place around the board as well.  We hope that these important conversations continue well beyond Access to Justice Week 2018.
