EVENT: October 9: Racism Against White People? Challenging a Dangerous Idea.

Osborne House CEO Barbara Judt claims that the provincial government has a “racist agenda” against the women’s shelter she heads and that an e-mail sent by Deputy Premier Eric Robinson about an Osborne House fundraiser was racist. Some
politicians and journalists have echoed these claims. The idea that white people in Canada face racism has been given a boost.

Join us for a discussion of what makes this idea dangerous, why it gets a hearing and what can be done to challenge it and fight the real racism that people of colour and indigenous people experience.
