Queen's and community to march against racism
On Wednesday, March 4 the Queen's and Kingston communities will come together in a march against racism.
Organized by an ad hoc community group in response to recent racist incidents on campus and in the city, the march will start at 5 pm at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, 130 Clergy Street and will move around the neighbourhood, finishing at Queen Street United Church at Queen and Clergy Streets.
History professor Karen Dubinsky, a member of the organizing committee, says, “The thinking behind an event like this in the centre of the city … is that we want to acknowledge that racism is neither Queen's sole problem or Kingston's sole problem, it's everyone's problem.”
Before marching, speakers including city councilor Vicki Schmolka will address the group from the church steps. Following the march, refreshments (provided by Food Not Bombs) will be served at Queen St United Church.
