*We decided to come together as 2SLGBTQIA+ folks on a day that is difficult for many people, for many reasons. We completely disavow the commemoration of settler colonialism that mainstream narratives of Thanksgiving celebrate. We recognize the need for community and care on this day, and our hope that this gathering can be a day of healing, reflection, and nourishment for all of our communities and for the ongoing work of decolonization, water protection, ending violence, and land back movements.
