Description

Given the dramatic rise in antisemitic and Islamophobic incidents and hate crime in Canada and worldwide, it is important that we not only learn how to recognize these odious forms of discrimination but are also prepared to do something about it. To commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, we are pleased to welcome two long time allies and activists in anti-oppression work.

Please join us for this important and timely session facilitated by Shahid Akhtar and Dr. Karen Mock.
