Representation Matters!

The Black Lives Matter movement has brought into sharp focus the need to see and hear diverse voices in all our institutions and civil society – from small grassroots groups to the highest levels of government.
Black Canadians make up 3.5% of Canada’s population, but only 1.5% of our elected MPs. Similar statistics exist for women, indigenous people and other minority or marginalized groups.

Simply put, our Parliament, many of our institutions, and even some of the social justice groups we are involved in, often do not yet fully reflect who we are as Canadians.

Fair Vote Canada and Citizens for Public Justice are teaming up to offer a workshop hosted by Operation Black Vote Canada, a -multi-partisan organization that seeks to increase the representation of Black people at levels in Canada.

This workshop will cover:

  1. Why representation matters
  2. Practical strategies to diversify your organization.

Whether you belong to a large non-profit or small, grassroots social justice campaign in your community, you’ll gain tools for increasing the representation and meaningful participation of diverse Canadians in your organization or campaign.

This webinar will include a talk and a small group workshop. Everyone is welcome to attend. Please feel free to invite your friends, including those active in other groups, so we can all learn together.
