You are invited to The Black Care Conference: Knowledge Exchange, an interdisciplinary, multi-age community gathering born out of a collaboration between The Child and Youth Care Alliance for Racial Equity (CARE), LAMP Community Health Centre, Toronto Metropolitan University’s School of Child and Youth Care, and WoodGreen Community Services’ Rites of Passage.
We are calling care workers, community members, educators, researchers, and organizers (and those of use who wear many hats!) to join us for an evening of connecting around the type of care and work that attends to the needs of Black communities – especially Black children, young people, and their families. What practices are working? How can we more efficiently share resources and knowledge?
Join us as we introduce The Black Care Network and launch its website. Hear about the research project our team has been working on for the past two years examining anti-Black racism in child and youth care pre-service education. Come for the important conversations, the networking, and connections; stay for the delicious food, the great music, and the dopest of vibes. Dinner will be provided. (Yes, food food!)
This event is open to the public, but we are prioritizing space for those who identify as Black – especially Black young people. Community members of all ages are encouraged to come, so tell your auntie, invite your brother, bring your babies, and pick up grandpa on the way – we will have something for everyone!
