Truth & Reconciliation Circle

Meetings:  2nd Thursday of Every Month

Join your neighbours as we explore how we can contribute at a local and personal level to support reconciliation with indigenous peoples. Everyone is welcome! Get in touch event@fairfieldcommunity.ca for more info or to get involved.

Our meetings are informal and (we hope) welcoming but can be intense as we discuss issues that are often painful and troubling. Although we do spend a fair amount of time talking and sharing we also like action and so the second half of our meetings (typically they last about an hour) is often more planning focused. In this portion of the meeting individuals can:

  • let the group know what they are willing and able to do to help make events happen
  • put forward ideas for upcoming or new events (i.e. a speaker for the speaker series)
  • sharing of relevant initiatives we might get involved with (i.e. requests for assistance in the form of volunteers or services from organizations like the Victoria Native Friendship Center [VNFC]).

If you are not interested in participating in meetings but would like to be involved here is what we suggest – come to our next meeting, introduce yourself and stay for the first portion of the meeting to meet your neighbours and share your thoughts, experiences and hopes about reconciliation. If you feel inclined to stay for the whole meeting then do so, if not and you are interested in being involved leave us your email address and we will get in touch with volunteer opportunities for upcoming events. This can be something as simple as helping to set up chairs in the Garry Oak Room for a speaker or helping out with the planning and preparation of meals that we have committed to providing once a month for the winter shelter being run at the VNFC.
