City of Toronto seeking input for action plan addressing anti-Black racism

The first of the City of Toronto's Community Conversations addressing anti-Black racism in Toronto will take place tomorrow – Saturday, January 21. One conversation will be held at Ujima House, 1901 Weston Rd., Unit 18 and two others will be hosted at Women's Health in Women's Hands, 2 Carlton St., Suite 500.

Through January and February, Community Conversations will be hosted by 11 partner agencies across Toronto. Each agency has committed to hosting between three and five conversations. Residents are encouraged to participate. Dates, times and locations can be found at Community input can also be provided through an online survey that will soon be available on that website.

The Community Conversations are organized around a City review of recommendations made by members of Toronto's Black communities over the past 41 years.

The results of all the Community Conversations and online input will be compiled by City staff with help from Black leaders to create the Toronto Action Plan to Confront Anti-Black Racism. The action plan will be presented to City Council in July for approval and implementation in partnership with Black communities.
