  • Next Saturday, Valentines Day, memorial services and marches will take place in 13 cities to honour the lives of missing and murdered Aboriginal women: “The February 14th Women’s Memorial March is an opportunity to come together to grieve the loss of our beloved sisters, remember the women who are still missing, and to dedicate ourselves to justice. Please join us.”
  • No One Is Illegal activist and Canadian Hero Harsha Walia on immigrant health and social power.
  • NYC schools suspend girls of colour ten times more often than white girls. Wonder what the Canadian numbers look like…
  • A kind of sad and very long portrait of mens’ rights group leader Paul Elam. Spoiler alert: he’s an asshole!
  • Thank you Colorlines for bringing our attention to this fascinating infographic of changing race categories in US censuses (is censuses really the plural of census?).
  • This post is specifically for our editor Nadine, who loves dem funny ladies.
