Coffee Chat Debrief – Dr. Makokis & Anthony Johnson
Wednesday, September 23,
4:15 pm PT | 5:15 pm MT | 6:15 pm CT | 7:15 pm ET | 8:15 pm PT
In 2019, Dr. James Makokis and Anthony Johnson became the first two-spirit Indigenous couple to win The Amazing Race Canada. The pair used the competition as a platform to tackle topics like gender and sexual identity, racism, mental health, and the environment.
University of British Columbia (UBC) is featuring a talk by the couple who will share their personal transformations, from their early years facing adversity around two-spirit and Indigenous identities to a lifetime of education, transforming them into leaders, activists, and role models.
Join the CUC immediately following the UBC presentation for a Coffee Chat debrief.
A separate registration is required for the UBC talk, which is not a CUC event.
