Urban Alliance on Race Relations celebrates its 37th anniversary

The Urban Alliance on Race Relations came into being in 1975 through community and labour partnerships in response to a series of racist incidents. This year, we celebrate our 37th Anniversary.

Save the date: Wednesday, October 24th, 2012, 6:00pm

Location: St. Lawrence Hall, 157 King Street East

The keynote speaker for the evening is Mr. Gerry McNeilly, Independent Police Review Director who will speak on “A Journey to Justice and Integrity”.

This year, in addition to the much anticipated Race Relations Awards to honour anti-racism champions in the community, there will also be a Media award to recognize excellence in reporting on anti-racism in print journalism.

Nomination are now closed and the award recipients were selected.

This Awards night is particularly significant in that we are paying tribute to the late Charles Roach, human rights lawyer, activist, artist, musician and Caribana founder who passed away on October 2, 2012. Julian Falconer, June Thorne-Roach, Barbara Hall, Fiona Crean, Zanana Akande, Karen Mock, Philip Mascoll, Neethan Shan and many other community leaders championing social justice, inclusion and diversity will be present.

Advance purchase of tickets is required.
