PSAC-NCR invites you to our upcoming webinar on understanding systemic racism in the labour movement. Presented as a panel discussion facilitated by Regional Executive Vice-President Alex Silas, Émilie Nicolas and Eagleclaw Thom will help us understand systemic racism by focusing on the question of white privilege:  

  • What is white privilege?  
  • How does white privilege contribute to systemic racism in the labour movement?   
  • What are actions union members and workers can take to identify and challenge white privilege in the labour movement?
