Don't miss an important conversation tonight

Join us for a conversation on why a Just Recovery must be anti-racist r1

Friends,

Right now, people across Canada — and all around the world — are rising up against racism, white supremacy, and police brutality.

Racism and white supremacy are deeply rooted in this country's history, institutions, and culture. If things are going to change, it’s not enough that we’re non-racist — we all need to be actively anti-racist. But many of us don’t know where to begin.

That’s why 350 Canada along with our friends at Leadnow, Sierra Club BC, and Climate Action Network are hosting a teach-in today to come together to learn about the moment we’re in and why anti-racism is crucial to a Just Recovery from COVID-19. Here are the details one last time:

When: TONIGHT, June 11th at 4pm PT / 7pm ET
What: Why a Just Recovery must be anti-racist: Mass online teach-in
Where: Online via Zoom here.

We have already had an overwhelming response so far. We recommend tuning in early to book your seat on Zoom. If you are unable to join by Zoom, we will have an online overflow room you can join... here.

Speakers:

Sarah Jama - Sarah is the co-founder of the Disability Justice Network of Ontario. She is a member of the board for the Hamilton Transit Riders Union and is working with the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board to create curriculum around combating anti-black racism.

Erica Violet Lee - Erica is a graduate student in Social Justice Education at the University of Toronto. She is an Indigenous feminist, community organizer from inner-city Saskatoon, and a Nēhiyaw philosopher queen learning how to be a writer.

Catherine Abreu - Catherine is the Executive Director of Climate Action Network – Réseau action climat (CAN-Rac). One of the world’s 100 most influential people in climate policy as named by Apolitical in 2019, she has over 15 years of experience campaigning on environmental issues including 7 years in the heart of the global climate movement.

The conversation will be facilitated by Anjali Appadurai, Climate Justice Organizer at Sierra Club BC. Anjali is a climate justice advocate, communicator and consultant. She works to strengthen climate change messaging and discourse in Canada by centering the stories of those on the frontlines of the climate crisis.

We hope you can join us tonight to learn, share resources, and most importantly, listen to the demands of the movement and take collective action.

As a South Asian immigrant who has seen first hand the disproportionate impact of the climate crisis on racialized communities, I have no doubt in my mind that climate justice work must center anti-racism. Join us tonight to learn how we can achieve this important aspiration.

See you tonight,

Atiya
