The Democratizing Knowledge (DK) Collective presents the Webinar Series Communities of Color, (In)Justice, and Multiple Pandemics.
The second webinar, Centering Native American and Indigenous Communities: Decolonizing Pandemic Politics, examines the crisis of Covid-19 within a broader history of structural violence and its impact on land, language, environment, and personal and communal wellbeing.

Confirmed speakers include: Betty Lyons (Onondaga Nation, American Indian Law Alliance), Dr. Brian Thompson (Oneida / Onondaga Nation, Assistant Dean for Diversity, SUNY Upstate Medical), and Dr. Jessica Kolopenuk (Cree, Peguis First Nation, University of Alberta, Canada).
