City of Toronto launches new anti-racism campaign

If you've passed by a bus shelter this week, you may have seen part of the Toronto For All campaign, a new initiative from the City of Toronto and the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI). It launched yesterday to spark discussion around issues related to Islamophobia and xenophobia.

Along with the poignant out-of-home bus shelter ads, the campaign will roll out online via social media.

"Racism hurts our communities in so many ways," said Amira Elghawaby, the communications director at the National Council of Canadian Muslims, in a press release.

"It's uplifting to see several key national and provincial organizations come together to encourage Torontonians to unite against discrimination. We all have a responsibility to speak out against all forms of racism, including Islamophobia. We must work together to ensure our cities are welcoming for all."
