On Monday, local authors will release a new book documenting historical social justice initiatives in Kamloops. Retired TRU assistant professor and social worker Trish Archibald was the brainchild behind Building Community in Kamloops: Social Justice in Action.

“Sometimes, the history of how we got to today gets lost. So it’s [the book] really for people who are doing the work, to understand the work that’s been done in the past, that they’re not starting from scratch,” Archibald told KTW. “There’s that old saying, if we don’t know our history, we tend to get stuck in it and repeat it and repeat it and repeat it.”
