The Lethbridge Action on Racism Circle (LARC) has undertaken several initiatives to address racism and discrimination in Lethbridge. Their work has been informed by dialogue with over 100 community members at potluck meetings. Through this process, varied and creative recommendations for action at several levels were gathered and published in two reports which have been widely disseminated.

A screening of a special series on racism by CTV'’s Dory Rossiter will precede the panel presentation. The panel will then highlight key recommendations from its reports, and share stories of personal experiences of racism and discrimination. An opportunity will be provided for questions and answers, and further dialogue following the presentation.

Panel Speakers:

Dr. Joanne Fiske, Dean of Graduate Studies, University of Lethbridge

Dr. Trudy Govier, Dept. of Philosophy, University of Lethbridge

Kayress Dela Cruz, Lethbridge Immigrant Services

Sarah Sweet Grass, Communications Dept., Blood Tribe Administration & Director, Amnesty International Lethbridge

Mike Frank, Graduate Student, University of Lethbridge

Mary Kosta, Linguist & Director, Amnesty International Lethbridge
