The third roundtable in the CRRF’s six-city series, the Urban Agenda: Winnipeg was held on September 18 at 1:30 pm. The roundtable is part of ONE: The Mayor's National Summit on Racial Inclusion. The Urban Agenda celebrated the contributions of Winnipeg’s diverse ethnic communities, while asking, "How do we move forward toward racial justice and reconciliation?"
The Summit, which was held September 17 & 18. 2015 at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, brought together leaders, community organizations and citizens from across Winnipeg and Canada. Here, ideas were shared and initiatives born to promote racial inclusion in all our communities.
“We’re more than excited by the calibre and commitment of individuals who have agreed to help us bring our first ONE Summit to life. With just 31 days remaining in our countdown, I encourage Manitobans and Canadians wishing to attend to register quickly at 1winnipeg.ca.” – Winnipeg Mayor, Brian Bowman
Renowned Canadian author Joseph Boyden gave the keynote address at the free evening kickoff event on September 17 at 7 pm CST. (Pre-registration is required.)
“The ONE Summit will highlight the collective efforts of government and community organizations in furthering pluralism, inclusion and Canadian values, while bringing all sectors together to meet the challenges of managing diversity and race relations in an environment of rapidly evolving demographics.” – CRRF Executive Director, Anita Bromberg
