Race, Data, & Policy Reform
Inaction is one of the most powerful forms of oppression. Our nation’s failure to collect adequate race-based data grants us to dismiss racism within our systems, and further works to actively promote a lack of transparency.
Join us on Monday June 5 at 6PM MST for a live streamed discussion on the needs and solutions for race-based data in Canada. Centered around the recent five-year study looking at race-based hate incidents, Iman Bukhari from Canadian Cultural Mosaic Foundation, will be moderating the online event to hear from the panel about their perspectives.
