Peel Anti-Black Racism Project

Of the many ventures championed by the Anti-Black Racism Committee of Family Services of Peel, the most significant was the submission of a proposal entitled, “Peel Community Anti- Black Racism Social Action Response” to the Digital Citizen Contribution Program to examine the behavioral and psychological underpinnings of the spread of disinformation and other harmful content in Canada as it relates to Black youth.

The purpose of the project is to document the existing expertise of individuals and community organizations regarding misinformation as it relates to racism in the media, particularly on social media, and to encourage and identify innovative responses to build awareness and change attitudes.

As a part of our work, we will develop a Knowledge Translation Plan to disseminate knowledge accumulated from this project. This project will result in outcomes that will assist organizations working with the target population to ensure that critical needs are met, evidence-based services and programs are developed, evidence-based policies are implemented, and a research agenda is considered.
