Systemic and Institutional Racism in Canada: An Online Round-table
Racism is a reality in Canada, and recent demonstrations across the country raise the importance of addressing racial inequalities that affect the lives of Black, Indigenous and other racialized communities.
Join the Centre for Race and Culture (CFRAC) for an online round-table where the moderator and guests will discuss what systemic and institutional racism looks like in Canada, and how this affects individuals and communities.

This is the second session of their new initiative “Challenging Discrimination through Community Conversations,” which is an ongoing series of online moderated round-tables with guest speakers from diverse communities, organizations, academia and the general public, that seeks to understand and address experiences of discrimination and exclusion in the Canadian context. By shining the spotlight on different forms of discrimination, such as anti-Black racism, anti-Indigenous racism, and discrimination against Asian Communities among other topics, CFRAC hopes to encourage solidarity among groups and individuals interested in promoting social inclusion and equity.
Each conversation focuses on a major theme with respect to the lived experiences and realities of specific communities. Their aim is to highlight the very specific challenges of different communities, explore the overarching issues, and discuss strategies for education, intervention and ally-ship.
