Panel On Confronting Race And Racism In The Criminal Justice System On March 27, 2017

Paul Cooper, Director of The Rights Advocacy Coalition for Equality (R.A.C.E.) and Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) invite you to the free educational event: Confronting Race and Racism in the Criminal Justice System.  Legal practitioners will provide practical tips on creating a record to reveal racial profiling. LAO is also actively looking to provide financial support for test cases to develop Ontario law so that the impact of racism must be considered in sentencing.  Robert Wright, a clinical social worker from Nova Scotia, who was a key expert in the case of R. v. “X”, 2014 NSPC 95 will be speaking along with others about this promising area of law, which remains largely unexplored in the higher courts of Ontario.   
 
WHEN: Monday, March 27, 2017, at 6 p.m.

WHERE: St. Michael's College School at the University of Toronto, 81A St. Mary Street, Brennan Hall, The Coop.
