Each year, the CSU chooses an annual campaign to inform and mobilize students on an issue of current relevance that affects our students and their larger communities. This year, we’ve chosen to focus our efforts on fighting anti-Black racism and police brutality against Black and Indigenous peoples, as well as supporting the ongoing work of the Black Lives Matter movement and initiatives by and for Black and Indigenous students in the Concordia community. Our goal is ultimately for this campaign to be a community-led effort. This will be our second town hall on this subject this school year. We hope that this town hall can be a place of community consultation, where students and community members will have the opportunity to hear about what the CSU is currently doing to support community demands around Black Lives Matter at the institutional, educational, and systemic levels, and to provide input regarding what they would like to see come out of this campaign. We also encourage students and other Concordia community members who are currently organizing around Black Lives Matter, police violence/defunding the police, and/or anti-racism to join in – we’d love to hear about your project and how we can support you!
