TRADITIONAL TERRITORIES: Elect Her recognizes with respect that this event takes place on the traditional lands of the Lekwungen peoples and the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day. Elect Her acknowledges that we, as settlers, benefit from these unceded lands. We must recognize our role in colonization and actively engage with decolonization.
ACCESSIBILITY: This event will occur in Michele Pujol room in the Student Union Building at the University of Victoria. The building and room is accessible to wheelchairs, walkers, and other accessibility needs. Unfortunately, the event will not have an ASL interpreter. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to those who are deaf and hard of hearing.
