Indigenous & Chinese Youth Anti-racism Conference

May 22 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Free
 
The Chinese Benevolent Association Youth Council and Enoch Cree Nation Youth Advisory Council would like to invite you to our second Indigenous & Chinese youth anti-racism conference. This one-day conference on Sunday May 22, 2022 will build off of the conversations that we started at our conference in February. This edition will focus on more specific topics, with the goal of opening up communication and cooperation between Chinese and Indigenous youth in our community.
 
The event is 100% FREE and even comes with FREE lunch and snacks for all attendees (which will be sourced from local Chinese and Indigenous businesses). The conference will take place in person at the Chinatown Multicultural Centre from 8:45 AM to 4:00 PM. There will be conversations about building understanding between Edmonton’s Chinese and Indigenous communities, panels with experienced community leaders, and even a small tour of the cultural landmarks of the Okîsikow Way/Chinatown South neighbourhood.
 
After Sunday’s conference, on Monday, May 23 we will be facilitating an Action Planning workshop to share ideas on how the relationship between our communities can grow in the future. Conference attendees are encouraged to participate in this optional workshop (included in the same registration form below).
