UNDPAD - A National Conversation with Labour
In December 2013, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 2015 to 2024 to be the International Decade for People of African Descent (UNDPAD), with the theme “People of African descent: recognition, justice and development”. The goal of the decade is to raise awareness of the issues facing people of African descent around the world and to take action to address them. This includes issues such as discrimination, poverty, and lack of political representation. The UNDPAD also aims to promote the recognition and respect of the rights and contributions of people of African descent, as well as their full and equal participation in all aspects of society.
The United Nations Decade for People of African Descent is coming to an end in 2024, how has labour moved the needle on anti-Black racism? Do we need more time?
Please join Toronto Community Benefits Network and Labour Community Services for an evening where we will hear from experts from both Labour and Community discussing how the first 8 years of the Decade for People of African Descent has progressed and consider where we need to focus going forward.
