CASSA, as part of its ongoing anti-racism and anti-oppression work in Ontario, is planning to lead a 100 day anti-racism campaign, across Ontario, with the following objectives:
a) to create broader public awareness so that Ontarians accept and acknowledge that racism (structural, institutional and individualized) is still alive in our province
b) to organize the communities to educate the systems so that the systems also accept that racism exists within their structures, policies and practices
c) to support and promote people working on anti-racism related initiatives so that they feel encouraged and motivated
d) to showcase and profile initiatives addressing racism and promoting access, equity and inclusion
e) to build momentum, strength and capacity so that our collective anti-racism work in Ontario becomes sustainable, collaborative and impactful
100 Days Period will fall between the International Human Rights Day (Dec 10th) to International Day for Elimination of Racial Discrimination (Mar 21st).
CASSA is pleased to invite you to join us at the Launch of our 3rd annual Racism Free Ontario Campaign on December 10th, 2012. The Racism Free Ontario campaign starts on Dec 10th, International Human Rights Day and ends after 100 days on March 21st, 2013, the International Day for Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
Join us at the launch to kick off the 100 day campaign and to hear from prominent speakers on the topic “Racism in Ontario: Where are we at? Where are we headed?”
There will also be a presentation on the progress of the campaign in the last two years and on the plans for this year.
