TRANSFORMATIONS: I define my-self

By Carmen Romero / Canadian Stage

“I believe when we define ourselves, we become responsible for our actions and we must therefore take control of what we do and how we conduct ourselves. We cannot be complacent and blame an inequality or injustice on the system or any entity beyond us. We take it upon our-selves to respect our fellow, human, environment and establishment. If we all take responsibility for who we are and what surrounds us, we will take better care of ourselves and each other.” – Carmen Romero

We acknowledge the land we are meeting on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Metis. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
