NEW Workshop Guide! Joining Northern Women & Unions for Sustainable Development

August 31, 2017

We created this workshop guide to help strengthen connections between Indigenous communities and unions. This workshop guide is intended to encourage inclusive conversations about the big questions we are all facing. These are some of the questions that came up for us:

• What would attract Indigenous people in your community to a dialogue with unions?

• How can Indigenous knowledge become an integral part of the union movement?

• How can unions be a part of decolonization? How can unions begin to decolonize themselves?

• How do communities “talk” to unions?

What is your most burning, powerful, or wicked question?

We hope this guide will help you feel prepared and inspired to encourage dialogues and creative actions in your communities, unions and organizations. We hope that you will experience the power and possibility of community and union connection, in which the experiences of diverse northern women play a central role.
