What About Scarborough? Racial Justice in Scarborough's COVID-19 Recovery

When Aug 20, 2020 at 5:00pm 8:00pm
Where

A discussion on COVID-19 and its impacts on racialized communities in Scarborough.

Racialized groups make up 67.4% of the population in Scarborough, and are largely responsible for the vibrant and diverse community that has been flourishing over the years. The widespread COVID-19 pandemic, however, has magnified already existing socioeconomic and health inequities impacting Scarborough residents, most of whom are Black, South Asian, Chinese, and Filipino. An equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic will require rebuilding racial justice into the centre of our recovery process.

What About Scarborough? is a public forum hosted by Urban Alliance on Race Relations (UARR) in collaboration with Social Planning Toronto on August 20th from 5-7pm EST. We seek to form a dialogue around what racial justice means for Scarborough as the City reopens and rebuilds from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please register HERE by August 18th and feel free to email UARR with any questions: info@urbanalliance.ca
