Forum Info

This Challenge was inspired by the United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, marked every year on March 21.

“Racism continues to cause suffering for millions of people around the world… We must, individually and collectively, stamp out racism, stigma and prejudice.”

– United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

On this day, thousands of people around the world participate in a global discussion to end racism. In 2013, the React to Racism: Youth Forum brought together students ages 14-20 from across Manitoba to talk about how we can fight racism.
Read the report about what the students said at the forum, and check out some photos of the day.
