To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on March 21st, Unifor will be holding a special webinar on March 21 at 7:00pm E.T. to discuss the rise in Islamophobia and antisemitism in Canada – a rise that has intensified due to the ongoing war in Gaza in the Middle East and that has stoked deep global divisions. 

Special guest speakers will discuss ways in which we can effectively identify and tackle these forms of discrimination in our workplaces and communities and work together to promote human rights, peace, and solidarity.

Register now to attend the webinar on March 21 at 7:00pm E.T.: https://form.jotform.com/240654097557061
