Join us for our third event as part of our initiative, the Digital Peace Project, thanks to funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage.

The third installment of our roundtable series will focus on the unique themes behind online hate against Indigenous Peoples and some recommendations to address these issues for civil society, government, and platforms.

The Digital Peace Project seeks to contribute to national efforts to mitigate online hate while respecting freedom of speech. It will accomplish this by engaging with civil society actors, particularly those belonging to ethnic, cultural, religious, and visible minority communities. More precisely, the project aims to increase the capacity of ethnic and cultural communities to address online racism and discrimination by centering the perspectives and opinions of those communities while exploring ideas for solutions.

Concordia University’s Indigenous Directions Office is a partner for this important session.

Speakers:

  • Dr. Suzanne Kite is an Oglala Lakota performance artist, visual artist, and composer raised in Southern California, and is a Ph.D. student at Concordia University.
  • Other Speakers TBD
