Wednesday, May 25th
6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Registration required; register in person at any branch, by phone, or online.

Join us for a free, virtual & interactive Anti-Islamophobia and Countering Cyberhate101 workshop. Registration is required to attend.

Anti-Islamophobia 101 – Topics include Unpacking Islamophobia, Gendered Islamophobia & Intersectional Identities. The workshops also help participants develop an increased understanding of how Islamophobia further marginalized Black and Indigenous Muslims, queer Muslims, and Muslims living with disabilities.

Countering Cyberhate 101 – Topics include Online hate speech and extremism, including individual and collective counter speech and counter narrative. The workshops help participants explore how cyberhate and online extremism intersect to increase our vulnerabilities on digital platforms and strategies to counter these effectively.

The virtual workshops were originally part of CCMW’s national Digital Anti-Racism Education 2 (D.A.R.E. 2) Project aimed at raising awareness about online hate and Islamophobia. As part of the project, CCMW hosted bilingual virtual workshops, training 3,000+ participants from across Canada on the impact of Islamophobia and how to counter cyberhate. While, the DARE 2 Project ended March 31, 2022, in its commitment to anti-racism work, CCMW continues to offer community workshops across Canada to help participants increase their knowledge and understanding of Islamophobia and Online Hate.

This program is presented in partnership with the Clarington Public Library, Municipality of Clarington, Oshawa Public Libraries, City of Oshawa, and Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW).

About CCMW:
The Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW) is a charitable organization dedicated to the empowerment, equality and equity of all Muslim women in Canada. Our mission is to affirm the identities of Canadian Muslim women and promote their lived experiences through community engagement, public stakeholder engagement and amplified awareness of the social injustices that Muslim women and girls endure in Canada, while advocating for their diverse needs and equipping local CCMW chapters with necessary resources to maximize national efforts and mobilize local communities to joining the movement.

Ice Breakers Film Screening and Discussion with Zechariah Thomas

[Youth, Adults]

Online via Zoom (Zoom link will be emailed to you upon registration)
Thursday, February 17, 6:00 p.m.

Registration required; register in person at any branch, by phone, or online.

Enjoy a digital screening of the National Film Board’s documentary, Ice Breakers, followed by a discussion with local hockey player, Zechariah Thomas! After the film, you are invited to participate in a discussion with Zechariah, a talented local hockey player currently residing in Scugog, Ontario.

Presented in partnership with the Municipality of Clarington and the Clarington Diversity Advisory Committee.

About Ice Breakers

Josh Crooks is a promising teen hockey star in a sport where Black athletes like him are chronically underrepresented. Ice Breakers reveals the buried history of a pioneering Black hockey league in Atlantic Canada, as Crooks discovers that his unshakeable passion is tied to a rich and remarkable history. (National Film Board)

About Zechariah Thomas

Born on December 10, 2002, Zechariah began playing hockey at the age of 10. In 2015, Zechariah joined the Oshawa General Minors. Over the last 7 years, Zechariah has had a successful hockey career, playing with the Okanaghan Hockey Academy, Florida Eels Hockey, Connecticut Chiefs, Brampton Admirals, and Acadie-Bathurst Titans. Zechariah is currently a member with the Jamaican Olympic Hockey Team.

During his time with the Oshawa General Minors, Zechariah was truly made aware of how expensive hockey equipment could be, especially hockey sticks, which can be a barrier for some children to play the game. In 2022, Zechariah created Swift Hockey, a hockey stick company similar to top professional hockey sticks, but at a more affordable cost, to help support the dreams of any child to play hockey and make a difference.

Be sure to see our other Black History Month activities this February!
