This Let's Talk About Racism online training course explores the well-informed conversations about anti-Black racism and equips you with the information and actions to fight racial injustice.
On May 25, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, George Floyd- an unarmed Black man- was killed by a police officer who kneeled on his neck for almost nine minutes. His killing unleashed nationwide protests demanding racial justice on a scale that hasn't been seen in decades. This led to global outrage which thrust anti-Black racism into the spotlight for the world to acknowledge and reckon with.
The protests over George Floyd’s death sparked protests here in Canada as well, renewing a focus on anti-Black racism within policing and other Canadian systems and institutions.
How do we begin disrupting the racism that runs deep in Canada? We listen, we learn, and we act. This course is part of the conversation about systemic racism that plagues our systems and institutions. Start with a sibling, a friend, or a co-worker and within your organization and start a conversation about how systemic racism is real and how we all need to be fighting to end it.
