CRRF, UARR successfully conclude one of the province’s largest virtual gatherings on racial justice thanks to broad participation and sponsorship
Over the course of two days this November, advocates, community organizers, and activists from across Ontario shared thoughts, perspectives, and lived experiences on racial justice issues in Canada in one of the largest virtual gatherings on racial justice held in the province this year.
The event was made possible through the efforts of 50 volunteers, 30 speakers, and moderators, 20 financial sponsors, over 700 participants who registered and took part in the Summit.
Through the 2021 Racial Justice Summit, participants learned about key issues and outlooks to help achieve our collective goal of eradicating racism in Canada. Key takeaways included:
CRRF and UARR are committed to fostering a society in which skin colour, religion, and culture do not dictate life outcomes, opportunities for success, or the ability to survive and thrive. The Summit’s resounding success is a testament to the broad base of support that exists amongst communities and the tremendous work underway.
Both organizations extend their heartfelt gratitude to everyone who helped to make the Summit a success and will continue to look for opportunities to advance policy solutions that address systemic barriers and racism.
Videos of each session will be available for viewing in the coming weeks.
