Lateral Violence is an effect of Colonialism that hurts us all. At Southern Stl'atl'imx Health Society we believe the solution is
Lateral Kindness. That’s why we’ve started the SSHS Kindness Project.
Imagine a world where we love and support each other, communicate with respect, and respond with kindness. That
was the traditional Stl’atl’imx way. It can be our way again. All it takes is a willingness to treat ourselves and others
with kindness and to say sorry when we don’t get it quite right.
Colonialism has kept us from ourselves and each other. Together we can make Lateral Kindness a Stl’atl’imx value.
