XAO week events included NCCT tour, documentary screening, BLM forum

During the week of October 30, the University of Toronto Students’ Union (UTSU) hosted its annual eXpression Against Oppression (XAO) week — a week of events to educate students and invite them into discussions about resisting oppression at U of T and beyond.

One of the events featured a screening of Stateless, a documentary from a Black Canadian filmmaker about systemic anti-Black racism and violence against people of Haitian descent in the Dominican Republic. The UTSU also hosted a Black Lives Matter forum on how to create informed social change for racialized communities.

On October 31, the union also collaborated with the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto (NCCT) to organize a guided tour of the NCCT, which is located north of the university on Spadina Road. Students learned about the NCCT’s community events, community and youth programming, Indigenous art, and gift shop for Indigenous-made goods.
