International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

March 21 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

The Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office (ARCDO) and the University of Toronto is committed to supporting faculty, staff and students in the tri-campus community and responding to the needs of campus communities experiencing racism and religious discrimination through diverse programming and resources. We are aware of the complexities and nuances in discussions surrounding faith, discrimination and racial equity. However, we recognize the equal importance of providing an opportunity for the U of T community and external community to hold these important dialogues.

Through this event, ARCDO hopes to deepen knowledge and advance the ongoing institutional work around faith, anti-racism and educational strategies, that is aligned with (but not limited to) the work of the Anti-Racism Strategic Tables.

Event objectives:

  • Identify and discuss anti-racism, EDI and faith-based approaches to address various forms of racial and faith-based discrimination (including but not limited to Antisemitism, Islamophobia, anti-Asian racism and other experiences);
  • Deepen learning on synergies and strategies that can be engaged between diverse faith-based advocacy efforts, to advance action planning and systems change;
  • Foster a space to engage in reflection and discussion of how to strengthen connections between anti-racism, faith-based and EDI advocacy efforts in post-secondary spaces.

This event will be held virtually through Zoom with limited in-person space available. Please visit the ARCDO website to register.
