Vital Conversations: Truth & Reconciliation. Whistler, how engaged are we? September 18 5pm – 7pm

The Community Foundation of Whistler hosts a Vital Cafe – a chance to gather around the provocative topic of what reconciliation means in Whistler, on Wednesday September 18, from 5pm – 7pm, at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre.

Led by Linda Epp, the panel of guests will discuss what Truth & Reconciliation means, and how to weave it into daily practice.

The event is free.

“Together, Canadians must do more than just talk about reconciliation; we must learn how to practise reconciliation in our everyday lives—within ourselves and our families, and in our communities, governments, places of worship, schools, and workplaces. To do so constructively, Canadians must remain committed to the ongoing work of establishing and maintaining respectful relationships.”

― The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, Volume One: Summary: Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future

Vital Cafés are conversations on big issues affecting our community with different themes, each inspired by the Global Sustainable Development Goals.
