This event will feature a panel of community leaders to share their knowledge on this topic, followed by a series of discussion groups. Whether you want to share your story, learn from others, or connect with community leaders, all are welcome to participate. Join us from 6:30 - 7:30 pm for registration, appetizers and snacks, and conversation. The panel will begin at 7:30 pm and discussion groups begin at 8:00 pm.

At this event, we will be filming a video that aims to share stories of racialized youth who have been impacted by the system in some way. This could be a story about your own life, those around you, or your community. The video will later be shared online and with community organizations to raise awareness, and inspire change. Please note that video participants will have options for anonymity, and safety/comfort in participation is a priority.


Our event is TTC Accessible and Wheelchair Accessible.
