About this event

The Anti-Racism in Sport Campaign working group is proud to host a two-day free virtual conference on January 22 and February 5, 2022. The conference will run from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on each of those days. This conference will examine the perspectives, experiences and barriers that historically excluded groups experience in sport as well as some of the ways organizations can make sport more inclusive.

The Anti-Racism in Sport Campaign seeks to increase, promote, and engage in discussions on anti-racism in sport about the presence of all levels of racism in sport in Winnipeg and its impact on people’s lives, and raise awareness, address, and eliminate racism and discrimination experienced by First Nations, Metis Nation, Inuit, Black, Racialized, and Religious Minority communities in sport in Winnipeg.

  • 2SLGBTQ+ Community
