The Black community within Toronto continues to experience extreme marginalization, systemetic disadvantage, restricted access to housing, racial profiling in policing/security/education, criminalization, over-representation in the criminal justice system, and high levels of unemployment. These injustices are continuously neglected by the general public, and are thus unaccounted for.
On Tuesday, November 17th, 2015 from 7-9 PM join Desmond Cole in an unfiltered discussion on the ways in which anti-Black racism manifests in Toronto and the affirmative actions that need to be taken by Torontonians, the police force, and the government in order to remedy these injustices. In addition, a portion of this event will be dedicated to proper anti-Black racism allyship, and what it means to be an ally to the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Non-Black allies are also encouraged to contribute to the space by way of active listening and internalized reflection.
