Acting Against Racism - North Shore

Acting Against Racism - North Shore

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.

This forum aims to connect people in our community and share strategies and actions we can take together and individually.

We will be joined by:
• Sunera Thobani (http://asia.ubc.ca/persons/sunera-thobani/) - Keynote Speaker
• Handel Kashope Wright (http://edst.educ.ubc.ca/facultystaff/handel-wright/) - Keynote Speaker
• Margaret Gallagher (http://www.cbc.ca/mediacentre/bio/margaret-gallagher) - Moderator
• along with a wonderful panel

Full bios are on our website: nsiip.ca/acting-against-racism/

Join us and let’s continue the momentum of resiliency and hope as active participants who see building an inclusive North Shore as a top priority.
