Nobody's Born A Racist 2.0 Speaker Series: The Nobody's Born a Racist (NBR) Speaker Series is a 12-month project that engages over 600 Canadian youth aged 12-29 in a national movement to combat systemic racism. Youth will work with experts, share their experiences dealing with racism, act and provide recommendations to decision makers. The innovative speaker series will engage Canadian youth from coast-to-coast-to-coast in a 360 educational opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the importance of anti-racism education, addressing structural inequities in society, healing and supports for radicalized communities. The NBR Speaker Series will spotlight 12 influential figures that are academics, speakers, Students Commission alumni ,educators, youth, and organizational leaders that will lead several relevant conversations on racism. We are in the process of recruiting for our Editorial Board of youth who will be leading and advising this process. Youth interested in getting involved can reach out to rachel@studentscommission.ca
