Directions, the Canadian Race Relation’s journal, provides community-based, action-oriented research, commentary, and perspectives on eliminating racism and discrimination.
We are pleased to announce that the October submission in Directions comes from Simran Dosanjh, J.D. “Color Coded Cognitive Care: Improving Mental Health Care for Ethno-Racialized Individuals in Ontario” focuses on three barriers ethno-racialized individuals face in accessing appropriate mental health care, discussing how these barriers result in unjust legal outcomes.
Simran Dosanjh is a recently licensed lawyer in Ontario who advocates for the rights of individuals from an anti-oppressive, anti-racist framework. Simran is a proud graduate of the University of Toronto where she completed her undergraduate degree in Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies, as well as her Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree. She hopes to apply the knowledge and skills she has gained through her education to protect the rights of marginalized and underrepresented communities.
