Acting Against Racism: Strategies for Moving Forward
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: Sunera Thobani
Keynote speaker: Handel Kashope Wright of UBC

A panel discussion will be moderated by Margaret Gallagher.

Join us and lets continue the momentum of resiliency and hope as active participants who see building an inclusive North Shore as a top priority.

The event is free but optional donations are welcome. Any donations received will be used to cover event costs and/or to support future similar events coordinated by NSIIP. *Donations over $20 are eligible to receive a charitable tax receipt.

Are you coming to the forum? If yes, we would like to hear about your experience with racism. Please fill out the survey prior to the event (Please copy and paste this link to go to the survey page):
