Anti-Racism Series

About Dais Talks on Anti-Racism

The Dais at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU) has partnered with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation to host a series of five bi-weekly public events addressing issues at the intersection of public policy, and race and identity.

Public talks will focus on the issues of education, climate change, and online hate through the lens of race and identity, including highlighting the experiences of Black, Jewish, Muslim, and Indigenous community members.

Through engaging conversations between the audience and BIPOC keynote speakers working in the policy influence space, participants will learn about communities that are impacted by laws and policies, but who might not always have people in the room to voice their perspectives when decisions are made.

Talks will revolve around their concerns, ideas for policy change, and calls to action at the intersection of public policy, and race and identity.

Events are free, and will be held in person and online throughout the fall. Advance registration is required.

The only way to make real progress in building an equitable world is to continue to dialogue to inform policy and action. Racism is a thread that runs through every sphere of society and we need all hands on deck to address it.

Canadian Race Relations Foundation is proud to play a part in ensuring there’s space for everyone at the table in this crucial and timely discussion series with the Dais at Toronto Metropolitan University, and we hope participants from all communities will come out, be heard, and take some learning back to their work.
