Countering Anti-Black Racism: Student Forum

February 25, 2021

In Fall 2020, MacEwan’s newly formed countering anti-Black racism advocacy group hosted a virtual community gathering that invited MacEwan students, faculty, staff and alumni to share experiences, ask questions, reflect on comments, or simply listen to the voices of those impacted by anti-Black racism. The gathering provided a space for reflection, but also to gather input in determining the areas of focus for the Advocacy Group. On February 25th, MacEwan and NorQuest students will join together and participate in a Black History Month forum that will continue this dialogue to demonstrate the ongoing relevance of anti-black racism matters, and provide tangible recommendations to their institutions that validate student concerns. This conversation will center on the voices of self-identified Black students as speakers, however, all are welcome to attend in the spirit of learning and support.

This event will be delivered via Zoom. Please register to attend. Presented in partnership with NorQuest College.
