Unifor will be hosting seven forums to bring together Union leadership, activists, employers and community organizations to foster new ideas, partnerships and connections, as well as to create tools, strategies, and policies for racial justice – in our locals, workplaces and communities. These forums are a part of the Federal Government Anti-Racism Action Program grant that Unifor was accepted for in 2020. Unifor strongly believes that it is critical for us to unite, learn and support each other and collaborate in an effort to dismantle and eliminate racism and build a truly anti-racist labour movement and world. These events will be hosted in each region by one of our five Racial Justice Liaisons. Each event is unique, consisting of panel discussions, guest speakers and breakout rooms for all of us to be able to converse, share perspectives and ideas that will contribute to this work.
This event is open to all. However, we are sending invitations to key allies and partners who we believe will find this conversation useful in their own work. We all need to be a part of the solution to combat racism. We will be compiling tools, practices, resources and identify paths towards racial justice for working people. Join us and be a part of the change.
