This event is being organized in solidarity with Scholar Strike Canada taking place Sept 9-10, 2020. On these dates Scholar Strike Canada (https://scholarstrikecanada.ca/about/) is hosting public digital teach-ins on “state-sanctioned violence as part of the systemic violence that materially disenfranchises Black, Indigenous and racialized people, and is a contemporary function of slavery, carcerality and colonialism in the world today.” For more information and to see a complete schedule of digital teach-in events visit: https://scholarstrikecanada.ca/schedule/
