Presenters: Safia Saleh and Nimo Ahmed
Hate crimes affect us all and statistics tell us that race continues to be the most common motivator for hate crimes in Canada. A June 2017 report by Global News based on data from Statistics Canada stated that hate crimes against Muslims more than tripled over the 3 year period between 2012 and 2015. This was despite an overall decrease in this type of crime over the same period. Recent events confirm this statistic here in Canada and abroad.
In this workshop, we will explore resources to meet the diverse needs of schools that represent a multiplicity of perspectives, so we can better encourage our colleagues to take action relating to inclusion in our classrooms, schools, families and communities. Please join us for this important and timely workshop.
