New campaign encourages residents to see beyond racism, discrimination and bias
AJAX, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 29, 2017) - Ajax Council and OCASI - Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants to officially unveil #AjaxForAll campaign.
As nearly half of the Town's population is comprised of visible minorities, Ajax is proud to launch this program and reaffirm our commitment to inclusion.
#AjaxForAll builds on OCASI's successful "Toronto for All" public education campaign that addresses xenophobia, Islamophobia, and anti-immigrant sentiments. Ajax is the first municipality outside of Toronto to partner with OCASI on a similar campaign.
