Tackling Anti-Indigenous Racism in Media Coverage

Open to all Unifor members.

The portrayal of Indigenous people in the media reinforces stereotypes and fuels anti-Indigenous racism, which has an impact on how people are treated and valued. This has created a lack of trust of the media for many Indigenous people.

Let’s talk about how this can be changed as Indigenous voices need to be heard.

Gina Smoke, Unifor’s Indigenous Liaison, will moderate this powerful panel:

Niigaan Sinclair - Columnist for the Winnipeg Free Press, Professor at University of Manitoba

Pam Palmater - Mi'kmaq lawyer, Professor at Ryerson University and activist

 

This workshop will be hosted online through Cisco WebEx, participants will be emailed information on how to join. You must RSVP.
