Anti-Racism 101

A session from CYPT’s November 18th annual forum. Join partners from the Immigration Partnership, and facilitator Evelyn Amponsah, as we collectively deepen our anti-racism knowledge and consider meaningful collective action. By the end of this session, attendees will be able to define anti-racism/racism, including understanding how to recognize it, and its different formations. They will also have an understanding of the history of racism in Canada through the use of Canadian and local examples while also learning about the systemic and interpersonal manifestations of racism. We will discuss stereotyping as it relates to racism. We will unpack biases we may knowingly or unknowingly have, microaggressions, including the not so “innocent” innocent things we say and work toward recognizing subconscious and conscious formations of racism.
