10 Oct Meeting with Canadian Heritage
On September 17, 2019, the UNDPAD Push Coalition met with the Department of Canadian Heritage to discuss 3 asks:
1. Federal funds should be allocated to the address anti-black racism within the context of the UNDPAD.
2. From a policy perspective, people of African descent should be considered as a distinct group requiring positive measures to address generational institutional anti-black racism in Canada.
3. Black community organizations want to be legitimately engaged in the development and roll out of the anti-racism strategy. We are currently excluded from the department’s work on an issue that impacts our daily lives.
