Who We Are
Righting Relations strives to support and build capacity amongst adult educators and community organizers, to provide space and resources for them to connect, reflect on, and organize for heart-led social change.
Righting Relations is committed to uprooting systems of oppression in all forms, within ourselves, within our networks, and within our society.
We strive for balance within our lives, families, communities and nations. We aim to work from a heart-centred place while honouring all our relations. We work to manifest harmony and respect for all life.
Righting Relations envisions a connected and collaborative society built on people’s engagement in upholding values of respect, freedom, dignity, inclusion, equity and justice for all life.
Our ultimate goal is that communities are vibrant and healthy, and engaged in the heart-led and decolonizing movement of righting relations for a more radically just and inclusive society in Canada.
Righting Relations was established in 2015 by the Catherine Donnelly Foundation in response to a demonstrated need for improved supports, resources, and opportunities for capacity building by educators and organizers for social change. Our work centres around Indigenous, immigrant and refugee, and low-income populations - and all of the diversity that these groups encompass - and centering lived experiences to guide and define systemic transformation is key to our mandate.
Over the past five years, we built three key hubs across the country to create regional networks and localized connections that work together to influence change, and in 2020, the network formalized as an autonomous organization, Righting Relations Canada.
