Panel Thursday aims to challenge systems of oppression

The Brock community is invited to attend a virtual panel discussion to continue a path toward institutional and social change following the recent Scholar Strike Canada action, where people from the Brock community and across Canada sought to call attention to systemic racial injustice against Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC).

The Activism and Solidarity Post-Script to the Scholar Strike Canada virtual panel discussion aims to explore the ways bridges can be built between the University and communities representing Black, Indigenous and People of Colour while using processes intended to combat anti-Blackness, reclaim human dignity and challenge systems of oppression. Presenters and participants will discuss the themes of anti-colonialism, anti-racism, critical race theory and intersectionality, as well as other similar topics.

Taking place Thursday, Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. and co-hosted by Professor of Education Dolana Mogadime and Assistant Professor of Political Science Liam Midzain-Gobin.
