As a collective, we aim to improve and address racial equity for Indigenous peoples within our organizations. We’re currently asking our member organizations to complete a questionnaire with the following questions. We invite you to do the same and ask your leadership team the following and come up with your plan moving forward.

This initiative is Indigenous-led, and was inspired by the labour of Black women. Black Liberation and Indigenous Sovereignty are intertwined and the Indigenous members are incredibly grateful to be able to elaborate on their efforts. We ask that you give credit to Feminists Deliver if you will be using our questions.

  1. Do Indigenous people currently access your organization?
  2. Orange Shirt Day/Truth & Reconciliation Day is on September 30. How will your organization be recognizing this day? Will Indigenous staff be provided with paid time off to rest and heal from what is likely to be a very traumatizing day? How are you caring for Indigenous staff and clients around this day?
  3. What services and programs do you currently offer to Indigenous people who access your organization?
  4. What gaps can you identify in how you provide services to Indigenous people?
  5. Do you have Indigenous employees? If so, what positions are they in? Do you have any Indigenous employees in leadership roles?
  6. What policies and practices do you have in your organization that work to recruit, retain, protect, and promote Indigenous staff? Is this a priority of your organization?
  7. Are there Indigenous people in your Board Membership?
  8. What policies and practices do you have in your organization that address racism and anti-Indigeneity?
  9. How has your organization committed to implementing the Calls to Action and the Calls to Justice? How about other relevant reports to your sector? Please be specific which reports you’re referring to by naming them.
  10. Does your organization have formal or informal relationships with Indigenous organizations or communities?


For settlers, please take action…
