Colour of Poverty Colour of Change举行论坛活动 在省选和市选中提出“种族正义”议题

来源:COPC   更新:2018-05-22 12:56:37   作者:COPC

The Colour of Poverty Colour of Change is hosting its third Provincial Forum, Racial Justice: Lead the Change on May 22-23, 2018, at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, 78 Queen’s Park, Toronto, Ontario.

 

As Ontario gears up for provincial and municipal elections, issues facing racialized communities and other marginalized communities are being left unaddressed. Racialization of poverty in Canada is pervasive and deeply entrenched, and racialized communities are disadvantaged by any measure, including income, education, housing and more.

 

“While poverty can be a concern for anyone - its causes, forms and lived consequences are not the same for all.  That’s why we need target measures that will address poverty and racial disparities in Ontario,” said Debbie Douglas, Executive Director, OCASI – Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants, also a founding member of COPC. 

 

The COPC Forum will attract about 300 participants from across Ontario representing various sectors: ethno-racial advocacy groups, immigrant settlement and social services, academics, and anti-poverty groups.  

 

The speakers at the Forum include:  Professor Beverly Jacobs from the Faculty of Law, University of Windsor, Shalini, Konanur, Executive Director, South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario, David Lepofsky, Chair of AODA Alliance, Deena Ladd, Coordinator, Workers Action Centre,  Sylvia Maracle, Executive Director, Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres, Logan McIntosh, Campaigns Director, Leadnow, Senator Kim Pate, and Angela Robertson, Executive Director, Parkdale Queen West Community Health Centre.

 

“Out of this Provincial Forum, we hope to develop strategies and actions to continue to build a strong racial justice agenda over the next five years, regardless of which party forms the next government in this province,” said Avvy Go, Clinic Director, Chinese and Southeast Asian Legal Clinic, another COPC founding member.
