AMSSA Forum: Anti-Racism & Anti-Hate Initiatives – Supporting the Integration of Refugees in Our Communities

February 15, 2017 @ 9:45 am - 12:00 pm

This timely forum will be a combined in-person and online training opportunity bringing together community organizers and experts in the anti-racism and anti-hate sector. Presenters will share best promising practices, resources, and tools for settlement, language and community service providers to navigate the challenges of combating hate and discrimination. This forum will address the challenges that Syrian refugee clients face in their communities and how service providers and community stakeholders can address these challenges.

This event is funded by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
