Acting Against Racism

Have recent national and international events made you feel uncertain or helpless about what you can do to prevent racist or discriminatory behaviour on the North Shore? Racism is not new and neither is Islamophobia, but police-reported hate crimes have recently increased in Canada, leaving many of us wondering how we can avoid being victims or bystanders. We will be joined by keynote speakers: Sunera Thobani and Handel Kashope Wright of UBC A panel discussion will be moderated by Margaret Gallagher. Join us and lets continue the momentum of resiliency and hope as active participants who see building an inclusive North Shore as a top priority. The event is free but optional donations are welcome. RSVP is required: Please RSVP online or call 604-973-0457 Event Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/247255045775277
