Toronto event: Racism, Poverty and Violence seminar
On Tuesday, October 26, 2010, at 12:30pm, the Accessibility Community Equity Committee (ACE) and the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University present Racism, Poverty & Violence: A story for youth by youth in Jane and Finch.
Organized by Accessibility Community Equity Committee (ACE), a group of racialized students, alumni, community workers and academics from the Masters in Environmental Studies program at York University, this seminar series brings together activists, academics, community workers, students and researchers to explore race, racism and the environment. It addresses these issues across a range of sites such as education, tourism, food, migration and sexual health. The goal of the series is to confront the contemporary issues that racialized communities face in relation to different aspects of natural, social and organizational environments. This seminar series encompasses a wealth of topics for rich discussions that draw from pedagogies such as anti-oppression, anti-racism, afro-centrism and eco-feminism.
