Centre for Social Innovation, 4th floor, Think Tank Room,
215 Spadina Avenue
Toronto, ON M5T 2C7

This is a monthly casual discussion group.  Chinese Canadian youth and young adults are welcome to drop in and share their experiences with culture, identity, discrimination and much more.  Hopefully, these conversations will raise consciousness and encourage peers to be critically about how certain areas affect everyday lives. Free admittance for all attendees.

This group is for participants:

~ Youth and young adults (under 30)

~ Any Chinese background

~ Newcomer, all generations (1st, 1.5, 2nd ….), new/returning residents any status

Topic for June 18: Discrimination: Sometimes we laugh at stereotypical jokes rather than raise eyebrows. Why be offended when we live in a multicultural society? If we want to take a stance, how do we critically address the prejudice at school or in the workplace?
