A Dialogue on Anti-Black Racism and Racial inequity: Implications for our work
The Faculty of Environmental & Urban Change is pleased to announce:
A Dialogue on Anti-Black Racism and Racial inequity — Implications for our work.
• Student Speakers from the Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change
• Carl James, Jean Augustine Chair and Senior Advisor on Equity and Diversity at York.
• Lisa Brown, Advisor, Education and Communications, Centre for Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion.
• Alice Hovorka, Dean, Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change.
This faculty-wide community discussion responds to the global uprising in response to the murder of George Floyd by police and in Canada to the death of Regis Korchinsky-Paquet and others. These protests draw attention to Anti-Black Racism and racial inequity everywhere. This community discussion brings together faculty, students and staff to discuss the implications of all this for our work.
There have also been on-going murders and deaths in custody of indigenous people at the hands of the police and others. Any response to anti-Black racism is necessarily interconnected with responses to all other forms of racism, colonization, and violence against indigenous people in Canada.
