On Saturday, November 30, the Urban Policy Lab hosted the inaugural Toronto Black Policy Conference, in partnership with the City of Toronto’s Confronting Anti-Black Racism Unit. The first-of-its-kind event was organized by Munk School alumni Anna-Kay Russell, Sharnelle Morgan, and Eunice Kays, founders of the Toronto Black Policy Network.

Featuring more than twenty leaders from Toronto’s Black communities, including MPP Laura Mae Lindo, Deputy Mayor Michael Thompson and former MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes, the sold-out conference focused on Black inclusion and innovation.
