Colour-coded inequality in Canada: Mobilizing for change

Date + time: 
Wednesday, May 10, 2017 - 2pm
Description: 

In this webinar, participants will learn how to promote economic equity, fairness and justice, and how our networks can mobilize locally, provincially and nationally to ensure that the different orders of government hear racial justice demands.

Michael Kerr will present Colour of Poverty-Colour of Change’s model of organizing, education and advocacy for racial justice in Ontario, as well as how to replicate and extend it into other provinces and cities.

Background:

In November 2016, the CCR passed a resolution on the racialization of poverty, acknowledging that

  • The gap between rich and poor in Canada is widening generally, and disproportionately impacts racialized people;
  • Inequalities with respect to economic status, health, learning or labour market outcomes, and more are deep and persistent among members of racialized groups

And recognizing that these two phenomena are products of institutional, structural and systemic racism and exclusion.

Cette session aura lieu en anglais, mais les participants peuvent poser leurs questions en français.

10 May 2017, 2-3 pm (Eastern time)

Presenter:

Colour of Poverty-Colour of Change Michael Kerr, Colour of Poverty – Colour of Change
