CivicMuslims is officially launching our YourVoice initiative!
YourVoice is your opportunity to be heard at town halls, forums, and consultations on local civic issues. Every event focuses on a specific timely issue. New to the issue? We got you covered. Prior to every event, CivicMuslims meets up to share relevant resources and get you up to speed through meaningful discussion. This also allows us to network and grab a bite prior to the consultation or public forum.
On Thursday March 10, 2016, join CivicMuslims at YMCA, 20 Grosvenor St for the Police Services and Community Safety consultation, hosted by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services of Ontario.
Join us as we discuss various important topics, such as:
- ensuring police oversight bodies have clear mandates
- improving interactions between the police and people with mental health or addiction issues
- clarifying the duties of police officers and modernising police recruitment and training programs
- creating a framework for police relations with First Nations
- improving police accountability and governance of police services boards
