Please join us at the FREE screening of YYC Colours along with a Panel Discussion on Racism and Religious Discrimination at The University of Calgary (That Empty Space, MacEwan Student Centre) at 6pm on Monday March 20.

YYC Colours is a solution-based documentary that starts discussions about racism in Calgary and Canada in general. The film took over a year and a half to produce. We spoke to hundreds of people and over 100 interviews were recorded through a community call to action that contributed to the content of the film. The documentary also touches on religious discrimination, hate crimes, privilege, white fragility, bigotry, xenophobia and islamophobia.

We will have a panelist of 5 community advocates that will speak to the audience about racism and religious discrimination in Calgary. This is an opportunity for all Calgarians to come out and engage in anti-racism and anti-discrimination, to learn and help end injustices.
