Join us at the launch of the Road to Justice Exhibit, a multi-media exhibit documenting the historical discriminatory treatment of Chinese Canadians and other immigrants of colour in Canada, the communities' triumph over racism and the lessons Canadians should learn from our history.

The Exhibit is the work of the Metro Toronto Chinese and Southeast Asian Legal Clinic based on its website: www.roadtojustice.ca with funding from Unifor. The display in Ottawa is co-hosted by the Human Rights Research and Education Centre, University of Ottawa, the Ottawa Chinese Community Service Centre, and the Chinese Canadian National Council (Ottawa Chapter).

At the Ottawa launch, a panel of speakers including Avvy Go, Yew Lee and Jamie Chai Yun Liew, will speak about the discriminatory impact of Canadian immigration law, both past and present, and how Canadian can work together to uphold equality and justice for all.

The Exhibit will be open to the public from February 4 to March 21, 2016.
