Update: the days of the Summit have been changed to March 19-21 (NOT 18-22). We have also extended the deadline for applications to Monday, February 22.

Students at post-secondary institutions across Canada have been at the forefront of organizing against racialised and colonialist violence on their university and college campuses, as well as within their communities, for decades. The first national Racialised and Indigenous Student Experience Summit, organized by the Canadian Federation of Students, will be an opportunity for student activists to gather, share stories of success and struggle, and ultimately develop a common vision to combat racism and colonialism. This summit will include workshops, meetings, and information sharing with student activists from across Canada

If you are interested in attending this meeting as part of the GSA’s delegation, send a short write up to pres@gsacarleton.ca telling us why you would like to attend by February 22, 2016. Successful candidates will be notified early the following week.

Please note that spaces at the summit are limited and open only to the participation of racialized and Indigenous identified people, with special consideration for participants from traditionally marginalized communities, such as those who identify as womyn and/or trans* and/or gender non-conforming and/or queer and/or with disabilities.

The cost of the event is fully subsidized, including registration, travel, and accommodations; however, if you do not attend at least 75% of the workshops, you will be responsible for paying the full costs.
