Anti-Black Racism in Education: Call for Written Submissions

Ontario Human Rights Commission

The OHRC launched its What We Heard Report on anti-Black racism in education. To continue engaging in dialogue with other key partners and stakeholders in education, the OHRC is issuing a call for written submissions on concrete solutions to address anti-Black racism in Ontario’s publicly funded education system. The goal is to gather additional information including recommendations for solutions and action to empower and hold duty-holders accountable.

The OHRC plans to publish an Action Plan with findings, recommendations, and future actions for implementation, and will work with community partners to track and monitor progress. The anti-Black racism in education engagement will strengthen public understanding of racism as a critical human rights issue. The extensive engagement process is designed to connect with people with both past and present lived experience, and with organizations that work at the intersection of anti-Black racism and education.
