Special Webinar: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women with Jen Mt. Pleasant
Start Date: 3/5/2020Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 3/5/2020End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:

As part of Indigenous Education Week 2020, register for a special 1 hour webinar with Laurier Alumni Jen Mt. Pleasant.

Jennifer Mt. Pleasant, a member of the Tuscarora Nation, knew that attending Laurier’s Brantford campus would allow her to explore her interest in criminology and make new connections while living at her childhood home on the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.

What she didn’t know was how profoundly her education – and life – would change because of it.

It was during a third-year undergraduate course that Mt. Pleasant first learned of Canada’s troubling cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women (MMIW).

In June 2019, Laurier alumna, Jennifer Mt. Pleasant published "Missing and Murdered Indigenous People in "Canada": An inclusionary approach to understanding violence against the original people of Turtle Island". This webinar will seek to explore Indigenous people and societies in the pre-, early-, and post-contact eras.

Registration.
