Join us as we gather to raise critical awareness and funds to dismantle prejudice in Canada and pay tribute to Mosaic’s 2023 Peace Patron honouree: Wes Hall, Founder of the BlackNorth Initiative
DISMANTLING PREJUDICE TOGETHER
Join some of Canada’s most influential leaders, contributors and community members to raise critical awareness and funds for our mission of dismantling prejudice and pay tribute to a Canadian who has championed our shared purpose to advance peace, equity, and prosperity for all.
This evening is so much more than a fundraiser - it is an opportunity to advance meaningful social change at a critical time in our society, and to connect with like-minded leaders and individuals working to create a more inclusive and united society where everyone can feel safe and thrive.
Your presence and support will fuel dynamic and effective education, programs, dialogue, research, policy and training to equip people with the tools they need to dismantle prejudice.
