When: Thursday, September 14, 2017 | 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Where: Kay Meek Centre, 1700 Mathers Avenue, West Vancouver
Hosted by the North Shore Immigrant Inclusion Partnership (NSIIP).
Have recent national and international events made you feel uncertain or helpless about what you can do to prevent racist or discriminatory behaviour on the North Shore?
Racism is not new and neither is Islamophobia, but police-reported hate crimes have recently increased in Canada, leaving many of us wondering how we can avoid being victims or bystanders.
We will be joined by:
- Keynote speaker: Dr. Sunera Thobani (asia.ubc.ca/persons/sunera-thobani)
- Keynote speaker: Dr. Handel Kashope Wright of UBC (edst.educ.ubc.ca/facultystaff/handel-wright)
- along with a wonderful panel who will speak to their personal experiences with racism and suggest strategies and actions we can take together and individually.
Join us and let’s continue the momentum of resiliency and hope as active participants who see building an inclusive North Shore as a top priority.
