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 is a journey into the unknown, a film about the transformational power of human connection, and a remarkable experiment in kindness and empathy.
