Consultation on racial profiling and its consequences
An opportunity for 14 to 25-year olds to be heard
On September 17, 2009, the Commission launches an important Consultation which will allow racialized youth aged 14 to 25 to speak out about their racial profiling experiences. The Consultation will also offer institutions and community organizations a forum to identify solutions to counter this form of racial discrimination.
Until November 30, 2009, the Commission is calling more specifically on youth to share how they experience – or have experienced – racial profiling, whether at school, in public spaces or with the child and youth protection system. Submissions from parents, teachers and other people who have witnessed racial profiling incidents involving racialized youth will also be accepted
