Dean Dexter Voisin talks to Global News Radio about the protests following the killing of George FloydCategories: Dexter Voisin
Dean Dexter Voisin spoke with Scott Thompson on Global News Radio (900 CHML) about the protests taking place in the United States and around the world in response to police brutality and the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.
When asked what can be done to ensure that the current public outcry results in meaningful change, Voisin pointed to the need to address the structures within our society. Racism is embedded in our institutions, governments, schools, and social service centres, he said, adding that we need to look at our policies, our politics, and our approach to service delivery to make sure it is inclusive. We need to make sure that racialized individuals are part of these conversations, so we are working with these communities not on them, he argued.
