A round table discussion on systemic racism within the justice system.  This session will be a panel based round table made up of practitioners and advocates discussing the challenges of addressing systemic racism within the criminal justice system.  Accepting that systemic racism is present in the justice system, panellists will be challenged to offer solutions.  The exchange is intended to be a frank and open dialogue on systemic racism with a forward focused lens examining the themes of participation, representation, and trust in racialized or marginalized communities.

Moderated by Gary Sears, Correctional Service Canada.
