Colonization and Systemic Racism: Pathways to Change
On Thursday, December 7, 2017, Falconers LLP lawyer, Anthony Morgan, was a featured panelist for the Human Rights Forum on Colonization and Systemic Racism: Pathways to Change, hosted by Urban Alliance on Race Relations.
Additional speakers included Chief Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission, Renu Mundane; Executive Director of the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres, Sylvia Maracle; Policy and Research manager at the Broadbent Institute, Brittany Andrew-Amofah.
The speakers engaged in a thought provoking critical conversation on the intersections of colonization and racism. They did so thorough providing responses to the following questions:
- Colonization and systemic racism are big phrases and big concepts. How do they play out on day-to-day basis in terms of lived reality?
- What are barriers to pathways to change?
- What are opportunities for pathways to change?
- What is one practical thing that each and every one of us can do to make positive change happen?
