The Urban Alliance on Race Relations
introduces Nigel Barriffe, President
The Urban Alliance on Race Relations (UARR) is proud to announce Nigel Barriffe as its new President. Having first joined the Board in 2011, Nigel has a long history of advocating for marginalized and racialized communities. Nigel was born in Kingston, Jamaica and immigrated to Canada with his family as a young child. As the former Co-Chair of the African Heritage Educator’s Network (AHEN), Education Action: Etobicoke North (EAEN) and member of the Good Jobs For All Coalition and Community Organizing for Responsible Development (CORD), Nigel’s focus has been on quality public education, good green jobs, and a more just society for all inside and outside the classroom. He currently is an elementary school teacher with the Toronto District School Board. We look forward to Nigel’s leadership as we navigate our 40th year of anti-racism advocacy in the City of Toronto.
The UARR serves to promote a stable and healthy multiracial, multi-ethnic and multi-faith environment in the City of Toronto by undertaking educational, research and advocacy activities that promote racial harmony. Its objective is to promote anti-oppression and anti-racism in Toronto through various community development projects and collaborative initiatives.
