“Last fall Torontonians were jolted when it was reported that a Muslim woman was the viciously attacked on her way to pick up her children from school.
Although severe, this incident sparked conversations pertaining to the numerous ways Muslim women experience a lack of safety in public spaces.
Through personal stories and placemaking insights, this walk will uncover the direct and nuanced attacks that Muslim face when navigating their local communities, academic institutions, the legal system and city-building processes.
This participatory walk will invite everyone to consider the ways we can co-create a greater sense of belonging and safety for all women in public spaces.”
Lately, when it comes to Muslims in the News locally in Toronto or regionally in Peterborough, Ontario, it appears there’s a lack of understanding of Canadian Muslims by any number of fellow Canadians.
