Accomplished professor, speaker, and author, Lisa Monchalin, Ph.D., provides powerful insight into the unjust treatment of indigenous peoples. She is a strong advocate for reducing victimization and preventing crimes. The first aboriginal woman in Canada to obtain her Ph.D. in Criminology, Monchalin has a wealth of personal experience and scholarly research to share.
Author of “The Colonial Problem: An Indigenous Perspective on Crime and Injustice in Canada,” Monchalin travels internationally to share her work. She presently teaches at Kwantlen Polytechnic University where she developed the course, Criminology 4240: Aboriginal Peoples and Justice.
Prior to her speech, there will be a reception at 6 p.m. in Dean Hall Lobby.
Monchalin’s appearance is part of the CWU Social Justice and Human Rights Series. This year’s inaugural theme, Mass Incarceration and Racial Justice: Black and Brown Lives Do Matter, aims to educate Central’s community and initiate discussions about race.
