IN THE KNOW TOO (2)
This project will address gaps in Quebec’s justice system, which mainly targets Black youths and their engagement in society. The BCRC also seeks to increase Black youth and other minority community individuals’ literacy on the criminal justice system and their capacity to confront racism, considering the over-policing of racialized individuals and the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement. Curriculum specialists will help develop interactive modules, pedagogical materials and recordings of virtual discussion panels for youth aged 13-35 at English-language schools with a high portion of students coming from various economic and social backgrounds. In order to reach youth outside of the school system as well as other adults, the project will extend access to modules to the broader community and disseminate education materials online and on community forums. Some 300 youth and 100 community members are expected to participate in the project.
