The CACD Community Forums have been a platform to discuss issues around hate crimes, discrimination and Systemic Racism that BIPOC youth face in peel region. In April we discussed What is happening, what implications discrimination has on student mental health and what gaps have formed in our police and education systems. In May we talked Why these issues take place, through discussion around social determinants of health, the need for policy changes and systems of reporting.
In our final discussion we will talk about How we take action. How do we support BIPOC youth find their voice at school, How do we support parents and families advocate for their children and How as a community do we mobilize lasting change.
