Panel Discussion: When Communities Unite, They Will Tie Up Racism

In commemoration of International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, this panel discussion borrows from the African proverb, when spider webs unite, they will tie up a lion. This theme speaks to the power of community mobilization in creating change, bringing about societal transformation, and fostering dignity for all.

The discussion will create a space to learn about some of the works of racialized communities who are actively fighting racism across our province. Panelists will underscore the efforts of community groups and individuals fighting racism on the frontline, while using their platforms to advocate for those unable to fight back by providing support and resources to fight racial injustices and creating spaces for meaningful actions to foster better race relations across our communities.

The event is a collaboration of the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, Canadian Race Relations Foundation, Halifax Regional Municipality and Halifax Public Library.
