Fighting An Uphill Battle: Report On The Consultations Into The Well-Being Of Black Youth In Peel Region


"This report addresses the lack of opportunity for black racialized youth, as well as other racialized youth in Peel region, and examines their experiences with identity issues, policies, the economy and racism.I chose this piece because it details “crimes of opportunity” that young racial minorities experience, how they play out in Peel Region, and what in particular needs to be addressed and solved. One suggestion is to increase the number of racialized teachers. I think this is significant because it is important to have a teacher who can relate to your experience.
