Researching Racism in the Valley, Panel Discussion

ABOUT THE EVENT
Acknowledging our collective responsibility, as a community, to end individual and systemic racism and discrimination, the Cowichan Intercultural Society is launching a community-wide research project. No data exists currently on racism in our Region. Base-line data will ensure positive impacts from interventions to prevent and address racism.
Join us for an online panel discussion exploring anti-racism research, ways of stewarding that data (grandmother principle), and a look at our local context as well as similar research in other communities.

Free Trip to Egypt
with Q & A with Tarek Mounib
Free Trip to Egypt is a journey into the unknown, a film about the transformational power of human connection, and a remarkable experiment in kindness and empathy.
But it’s more than just a film. On this site, you can find out how Free Trip to Egypt has sparked a movement to encourage all of us to leave our baggage behind and reach beyond fear and hostility towards a kinder and more compassionate world
