About the Webinar
In this webinar, Dr. Charlotte Loppie explores anti-Aboriginal racism in Canada – how to understand it in historical context, how it affects individuals and communities, and what programs, policies and strategies exist to combat it. Dr. Loppie describes the construction of race as a form of social hierarchy, followed with an overview of expressions of racism as well as the impact of lived and structural racism on First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples in Canada. Finally, Dr. Loppie provides examples of efforts to address racism in Canada, including anti-racism interventions, anti-oppressive education and cultural competency, as well as anti-discrimination legislation.
