Toward 21st Century Black Liberation ft. Robyn Maynard
Building on her critically acclaimed book, Policing Black Lives: State Violence in Canada from Slavery to the Present, Robyn Maynard provides an overview of state-sanctioned surveillance, criminalization, and punishment of Black lives in Canada. Drawing on examples from Canada’s immigration, child welfare, and criminal justice systems, this event explores the still-living legacy of slavery across multiple Canadian institutions. Maynard’s intersectional approach to anti-Black racism addresses the unique and understudied impacts of state violence as it is experienced by Black women, Black people with disabilities, as well as queer, trans, and undocumented Black communities. This event serves as a call-to-action to work toward dismantling structures of racial domination and re-imagining a more just society.

Building Communities that Make Change
In the spring of 2017, ETFO embarked on a series of community forums. We're making connections between building better schools and creating a more just Ontario. We reached out to activists to have conversations about connecting communities for social justice.
