Toronto Immigration Organization Launches Anti-Racism Ad CampaignJune 16, 2016
G98.7FM Entertainment News
The city of Toronto has partnered up with the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants to help break down what they believe is a rise in islamophobia in the city.
The partnership recently launched an advertisement last Tuesday which features a white male telling a woman in a hijab to go back where she came from.
“Where,” replies the woman, “North York?”
The bottom caption then reads “Muslims are a part of Toronto.”
The agency’s executive director Debbie Douglas says she has “absolutely” seen a rise in the anti-Muslim sentiment since refugees began arriving from Syria in large numbers in December. The agency hopes that ads like these will help break the stigma.
