Spotlight Series!

We're excited to announce a new feature in our newsletter: a Spotlight feature on local organizations in Edmonton doing important work on anti-racism, anti-oppression, social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.

First in our series we're thrilled to showcase the Multicultural Family Resource Society. With Executive Directors Roxanne Felix-Mah and Ashima Sumaru-Jurf, MFRS is a vital organization offering a variety of resources to the community such as parenting groups, youth groups, girls' program, ethnocultural sexual health education & violence prevention programs, English for community integration, family settlement and integration, and emergency support funds. Roxanne and Ashima are also incredibly talented facilitators offering various workshops through their work with MFRS and with CFRAC. Learn more about them and the work that they do here.

Emancipation Day
 
August 1 marks Emancipation Day in Ontario - a celebration of freedom for those enslaved in Canada. Consider this important article, written by leading Black studies scholars , , , and troubling the idea that such a day can be celebrated in a context of ongoing anti-Blackness:
