Responding to the nation-wide sesquicentennial celebrations of the colonial nation state, we published “150 Acts of Reconciliation for the Last 150 Days of Canada 150” in August 2017. Our list was designed to appeal to everyday Canadians, especially those who were committed to reconciliation but unsure how to take up the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s 94 Calls to Action. In this event, we will talk about our list, our process of creating it, and the impact it continues to have. We show how everyday acts of reconciliation and solidarity can be a catalyst for profound change.
