React to Racism
2014 Youth Conference
This campaign is inspired by the United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, marked every year on March 21. The 2014 Youth Conference will also honour and learn from the life and work of the late Nelson Mandela.
The 2014 Youth Conference will be held on March 19, 2014. React to Racism brings together students from across the province to talk about how we can fight racism in Manitoba. Registration is not open to the public. Check back after the conference to see what we learned and talked about.
React to Racism 2014 is brought to you by the Winnipeg Coalition of Municipalities Against Racism and Discrimination (CMARD), Province of Manitoba Multiculturalism Secretariat, and Canada. Our partners include the Newcomer Employment and Education Development Services (N.E.E.D.S.) Inc, Manitoba Association of Rights and Liberties (MARL), Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning, Manitoba Human Rights Commission, Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba (TRCM), and Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre.
