We will focus on issues that deal with the material realities of the community and open a space for dialogue and commitment to year-long and ongoing organizing, mobilizing and education around the subjects raised in the films and the panel discussions. We will use this gathering to reach out to Toronto’s Pan Afrikan community with the goal of advancing a more progressive political agenda for the material and socio-economic emancipation of all Afrikan peoples.
