Un-Settling White Supremacy and Privilege facilitated by the Niagara Anti Racism Coalition, Sunday November 26th at 3pm at Shorthills Provincial Park, will aim to identify the multiple ways that white privilege operates throughout the Niagara Region. A primary goal is to identify personal and group actions that will make all of our lives more fair, equitable and peaceful. The Niagara Anti-Racism Coalition is a group of Niagara residents who are working to end racism and discrimination in our communities.
