University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
The Student Teachers Anti-Racism Society (STARS) promotes anti-racism education at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan through the support of the College. We work collaboratively to understand, identify, and address individual and systemic racism and its interlocking forms of oppression based on gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion and other socially constructed categories. We believe that anti-racist and decolonizing education, when woven together, can create humanizing and emancipatory change for everyone.

The violence (racism and misogyny) Indigenous women experience is systemic. Last year we were fortunate to have Marilyn Wapass present a powerful and inspirational talk called Racism and Violence Against Aboriginal Women. She left us with many resources and ideas to create change.To learn more from some of the many resources available see:
