Breaking Down Racial Barriers in Sport
Did you know that only 18% of racialized youth participate in sports?
Mosaic's 2021 annual theme of Dismantling Prejudice in Sport kicked off with the first of a variety of dialogues and activities. For those of you who attended our Peace Patron Award gala in June, you saw an abridged version of the first fireside chat, Breaking Down Racial Barriers in Sport. It is time to join panelists, Dr. Janelle Joseph, Mekwan Tulpin, Julian SpearChief-Morris and facilitator, Christian Blake in taking an intersectional approach to learning about the barriers that exist for racialized youth and adult athletes and how we can all work together to break down those barriers.
