This Winter, RiVAL (the ReImagining Value Action Lab) was very pleased to work with students in Kim Ducharme’s Child and Youth Care class at Confederation College on a project to help publicize the recent report “Broken Trust: Indigenous People and the Thunder Bay Police Service” published in December by the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD).

This report painted a damning picture of the state of anti-Indigenous racism in Thunder Bay and at all levels of city and police institutions. However, unfortunately very few citizens of the city have taken the time to engage with the report.

In this poster project, students worked with RiVAL to prepare and print a series of posters framed around quotations from the report itself, which they then hung around the city to spark dialogue and consideration. While these posters were originally made on RiVAL’s unique Risograph printer, the versions here are presented in JPG and PDF format, which you are welcome to download and print at home.
