CDF Newsletter: November 2021

Dear team,

As we begin to approach the end of the semester for many, we will keep communications light! It was great to convene all together last month—we hope you found the biannual convening of Crafting Democratic Futures Teams helpful and inspiring as we continue moving forward.

This month we are reflecting on ways to decolonize and reframe the upcoming holiday. Look through the resources below for amazing work exploring the lands and languages of Indigenous peoples around the globe, telling the real histories of Thanksgiving, and centering voices of Indigenous researchers, artists, and citizens.

We recognize that this holiday may bring tension and difficulties in our current political and health-crisis realities. We stand with you and wish you all the best as we continue to navigate difficult times,

The CDF team
