The City is now accepting member applications for the new Anti-Racism Advisory Table, a group that will help inform the City’s first Anti-Racism Strategy
The advisory table will be made up of anti-racism leaders from racialized communities who will provide subject matter expertise to the City’s Anti-Racism Secretariat. The group’s mandate is to collaborate to raise awareness about systemic and individual experiences of racism, encourage actions to effectively address racism and provide input into the City’s Anti-Racism Strategy. The group will bring forward community perspectives on all aspects of racism, including the six priority areas the strategy will address: employment equity, housing, governance, economic development, health outcomes and youth development – all of which are within the City’s jurisdiction.
You can apply online to be a member of the advisory table before the deadline of August 10. Appointments for members will be finalized by August 31.
