Hybrid Discussion – Dais Talks on Anti-Racism: Anti-Black Hate Online in 2023
Wednesday 1 November 2023, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EDT, online and Toronto, Canada
The rise of the digital age has brought both positive interactions and troubling challenges. One of the most pressing issues is the proliferation of anti-Black racism on online platforms. This session will look at the forms anti-Black racism takes online in Canada, what systemic interventions can be made to counter it, and what actions can lead to improved accountability to online hate. We’ll hear from Black community and policy experts as they share their experiences, emerging research evidencing the severity of the issue, and promising public policy solutions.
This event is open to all individuals who are interested in understanding and addressing the issue of anti-Black racism online. Whether you are a student, educator, activist, policy maker, or concerned citizen, your presence and participation are vital to advancing this important conversation.
This is a free event open to the public. It will take place in-person and will be streamed online at the same time. Please register based on whether you intend to attend at the Toronto location or online.
