October 2022 Newsletter

Along with the fresh fall air, our newly relaunched website has arrived! 🍁

We will be uploading a resources section that includes recommendations from our community for books, films, podcasts, and more on topics related to dismantling prejudice.

Have you recently read something informative or that motivated you to take action? Send your book recommendation to with a short quote about why you think someone one NEEDS to read it, and what stood out to you most. We want to hear from you! 📚

Read our latest blog:

In 'Data Limitations: How poor data impacts communications', Mosaic Research Officer, Riley McLaughlin, discusses how addressing the limitations of data in research is essential to improving program development and policy recommendations in efforts to dismantle prejudice.

This film depicts the events leading up to #MeToo, and how women like Zelda Perkins, once Harvey Weinstein’s assistant, broke the Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) that coerced them into silence.

Thank you to RBC 🎉

Charity Challenge

Together, we’ve raised nearly $10,000 for Mosaic through the #TorontoCharityChallenge. Thank you to everyone who supported this first-time event for this organization, with participants and supporters stepping up from coast to coast.

Mosaic’s team has until October 31 to complete their half marathons and cross our collective finish line. There’s still time to get us reach our fundraising goal – click here to donate.

Advancing Education & Reconciliation

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30th motivated many people and organizations to honour the children who never returned home, Survivors of residential schools, and their communities.

The Mosaic team participated in various activities as a part of our ongoing commitment to advance reconciliation, including attending a Hot Docs screening of Returning Home. This documentary follows Phyllis Jack-Webstad, a survivor whose experiences inspired Orange Shirt Day. This film can now be seen on Crave.

The Power of Respectful Dialogue

Mosaic volunteer Mark D. Swartz launched a solo-bike journey from Halifax to Toronto this past summer to engage in respectful dialogue and raise funds for organizations addressing discrimination and hate.

He had many experiences along the way and has shared them in his latest blog. Mark is a great example of how everyone can take action to move the dial on dismantling prejudice.
