Anti-Poverty Groups Release Provincial Racial Justice Report Card


Media Advisory


In preparation for the upcoming provincial election, members of racialized communities will release the Racial Justice Report Card for Ontario at a press conference on Wednesday, September 21, 2011, at 11:00 a.m. at 110 Eglinton Avenue West, 2nd Floor, Toronto, Ontario.

The Report Card is compiled by the Colour of Poverty Campaign – Colour of Change Network (COP-COC) with inputs from or research by a number of community based organizations working in different sectors including anti-racism work, health, education, housing, legal services, and child care.

COP-COC will release its final grades for the three main political parties based on their record during their most current term of office and their proposed election platforms. The grades will reflect the parties' stated as well as actual commitment to promoting racial justice and equity in Ontario.
