Our Art & Food Storytelling Festival had a great turn out with about 100 people in attendance. Our group of seniors and youth shared stories of family history, childhood memories and tales of immigration. At the event, we launched 3 short videos that capture the journey of the workshops which features interviews with the facilitators and participants. They will be available to view on our website soon. Thank you to everyone who attended and congrats to our participants and facilitators for a job well done. It was a heartwarming experience to witness the journey of the participants and reminds us that everyone has a story to share.

As a Coalition, we were calling for accountability and transparency at the York Region District School Board. A number of people have come forward regarding the YRDSB's lack of response to recent incidences of anti-Black racism and Islamophobia. As an advocacy organization it's important for us to show solidarity against anti-Black racism and Islamophobia. When one incident of discrimination occurs against one student, it has a ripple effect that impacts everyone around them including friends, family and community members.
2016年12月2日我们和社区代表联盟组织一起参加了由Vaughan African Canadian Association and the National Council of Canadian Muslims主办的记者招待会。作为联盟成员，我们呼吁约克区教委的责任和透明度。就最近的反对黑人种族主义和惧怕伊斯兰的事件很多人指责约克区教委失责。当对一个学生的歧视事件发生时，会发生连锁反应，对他们周围的每个人包括朋友，家庭和社区成员都会有影响，
