Reconciliation Dialogue Toolkits

Reconciliation is an ongoing journey, one that will take a collective effort to find a new way forward. We invite you to contribute to this important conversation and involve your social and professional circles, be it your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, or classmates.

The Community Action Toolkits are intended to provide you with some guidelines and ideas on how to start the reconciliation conversation. Of course, every community and situation is different and we invite you, as the expert in your own community, to use these tools in a way that is appropriate, impactful, and safe in your respective environments and situations.
