Once again Linc Up privledge is showing its bias and hate for many in the 49507 community by simply excluding one side of the topic and discussion. Race in 49507 is being ignored by powers that be and we will picket and protest and expose Linc Up for the liars and horrible people they are period.

Organizing against the Alt-Right in Canada? Yes, in Canada!

Date: 
Tue, Nov 7, 2017 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

City:

The election of Donald Trump as president has ushered in an alarming rise in Far Right and fascist mobilizing across the United States, and sadly, this political climate has spread north of the border as well. Despite the global image of Canada being a tolerant, progressive country, Far Right groups are seizing on the momentum created by Trump to spread xenophobic, Islamophobic, and sexist ideas. And while the world goes ga-ga over Justin Trudeau and his impeccable hair, much of this hatred is facilitated by the Canadian political elites and media personalities.

If you have ever wrestled with the idea of racism, what it is, whether it still is a problem, and how it impacts your life, join us! Even if you have been through anti-racism programs before, we all need frequent refreshers.

Rev. Bryan Smith and Rev. Lindsey Anderson will be leading this 2 1/2 hour program. At the training, we will explore what is meant by racism, a word that is emotionally charged and commonly misunderstood. We will also explore some of the historical and fundamental foundations of racism and how it is destructive to all of us, regardless of race.
