Purpose: The organization will develop an Anti-Black Hate Crimes Manual with two components: one aimed at victims of anti-black hate, and the other for institutions and community advocates, and will organize and hold a forum on anti-black hate crimes. The manual will educate and assist African Canadian victims in responding to hate crimes and educate police, prosecutors, lawyers, educational institutions and community advocates on the specific needs and concerns of African Canadian victims and their communities. The forum, which will be held in Ottawa on March 12, 2009, will bring together community members and justice stakeholders to raise awareness of and develop strategies and partnerships to combat anti-black hate crime. These activities will increase awareness about issues related to anti-black hate crimes and help the justice system to address race based issues in the justice system.
