A Cross-Canada Conversation on the International Decade for People of African Descent (IDPAD)

Christians across Canada are invited to this unique, livestream dialogue to bear witness to the experience of people of African descent in a Canadian Christian context. The evening will feature a keynote presentation by the esteemed Dr. Afua Cooper on the realities of current systemic anti-Black racism in the Canadian context and challenges to the Canadian church as well as a multifaceted panel discussion from diverse Christian voices across Canada, small group discussion in breakout sessions, and a time of prayer. The objective of this Cross-Canada Conversation is to raise awareness of the International Decade for People of African Descent and encourage action on the part of Christian communities and individuals in Canada to work to end anti-Black racism.

This event will be fully accessible and bilingual in both English and French.

COST: This Cross-Canada Conversation is free for all who would like to attend, but a registration fee of CD$20 per participant is requested to offset the cost of the event.
