Wayf And Qay Presents: An Evening With Black Lives Matter! says
As many of us know, there are people who are concerned, disheartened, shaken and worried about the state of the world we live in right now. There are a number of movements happening globally to challenge the racism we are seeing and experiencing.
Please join us to learn and build tools on how we can continue to build solidarity for the communities affected and support each other through such challenging times.

How can our community engage with other communities to build solidarity?
what are some challenges we may face that other communities are also facing and what can we learn from the work that groups such as BlackLivesMatter are doing?

Alexandria Williams will be facilitating this discussion. She is one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter- Toronto.

About WAYF
The Where Are You From? Collective (WAYF Collective) is an art-based and activism program for Asian-identified people.

​Our work seeks to address the lack of agency that Asian Canadians experienced in defining our identities, visibility, and representation by offering workshops for youth, running Arts events, and creating an online platform for self-representation.

We work from an intersectional, anti-oppression framework to empower Asians to develop critical art practices and build activist spaces that challenge dominant culture after decades of collective silence. Our mission is to celebrate Asian identities and achievements, build capacity for Asian-identified youth, and connect diasporic Asian communities so that we can create intentional dialogue that disrupts status quo.

Our work is made possible thanks to the 2016 TD Michaëlle Jean Bursary and 2016 Laidlaw Foundation's Youth-Led Community Change Grant.
