Beverley Salmon: Never stop fighting systemic discrimination
You are invited to meet Beverley "Bev" Salmon, a co-founder of the Urban Alliance on Race Relations and the Ontario Human Rights Commission's first Black female commissioner. Salmon, a former Metro and North York Councillor, is currently pressing the Wynne government to support legal funding for the families of police shooting victims so they can have representation at inquests. A tireless fighter, she joined others in 2014 in calling for the Toronto Police to end the practice of racial profiling and carding. We look forward to hearing from this respected community elder, a woman who not only knows but has written Black history in Toronto.
Please call 416-395-5720 or drop by our information desk to register for what promises to be a very enlightening and important presentation.
