A Collective Impact: the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s interim report on its inquiry into racial profiling and racial discrimination of Black persons by the Toronto Police Service

On December 10, 2018, Human Rights Day, the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) released A Collective Impact, the OHRC’s interim report on its inquiry into racial profiling and racial discrimination of Black persons by the Toronto Police Service (TPS).  A Collective Impact provides findings relating to Special Investigations Unit (SIU) investigations of TPS use of force resulting in serious injury or death, describes the lived experiences Black communities have shared during the OHRC’s community engagement, and offers a review of legal decisions.

Where: Online, via Webex

The CRRF would like to acknowledge the commemoration of International Women’s Day. This year's theme for International Women’s Day, #InnovateForChange, is a call to action, asking everyone to harness the power of technology to create a more equal world. In Canada, only a third of graduates in STEM are women, a difference that’s magnified in fields such as engineering and computer science. By removing the barriers facing women in STEM, we can unleash new ideas and solutions that will transform our society and strengthen our economy. We must also ensure that the intersectionality of race and gender is not forgotten when speaking about issues surrounding women. Racial discrimination further exacerbates gender discrimination and because of this, we need to speak out regarding the challenges facing all women, and push for greater representation of all women in STEM, and in society.
Stay tuned for further announcements about our March programming
