Join NALSA as we recognize the Day of Mourning by marching from the law school to the University Mall. A potluck will follow the march. Prior to the march, on November 24th, we will be making signs in the NALSA lounge from 4-8pm. Contact Slam at email@example.com or Espy at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
"Since 1970, Indigenous people & their allies have gathered at noon on Cole's Hill in Plymouth to commemorate a National Day of Mourning on the US Thanksgiving holiday. Many Native people do not celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims & other European settlers. Thanksgiving Day is a reminder of the genocide of millions of Native people, the theft of Native lands and the erasure of Native cultures. Participants in National Day of Mourning honor Indigenous ancestors and Native resilience. It is a day of remembrance and spiritual connection, as well as a protest against the racism and oppression that Indigenous people continue to experience worldwide."
