Building Decolonial Solidarity

How can we build and strengthen relationships across communities as we look to decolonize ourselves and the world around us?
For our first digital dialogue of Season 1, we held space to explore this questions and others as part of “Decolonizing our Dreams,” with Aslam Bulbulia, a community builder and leader who has been hosting dialogues and reflecting on the links between decolonial practices in Vancouver and South Africa over the last 2 years.
