This webinar presents a conference on the topic of the impact of racial profiling.

Abstract: Using the critical race methodology of composite counter storytelling, the following presentation explores Black youth experiences with the police in Toronto. This approach aims to counter the notion of ‘equality before the law’ and demonstrate how some legal criminal justice actors, such as the police, perpetuate the marginalized status of Black youth through racial profiling and the process of criminalization.
