Quebec Government Launches Commission on Systemic Racism, Calls for NonProfit Involvement

Last week, the government announced it would launch a commission on systemic racism in the province, following months of lobbying from community groups and citizens (including us, here at COCo). For those who have been pushing for its creation, the commission is a first step in pushing Quebec’s government to adopt a detailed plan to address racial discrimination.

The majority of the testimonials will come through the participation of 15-20 non-profit organizations across the province.
