About the Caucus

The Race and Ethnicity Caucus (REC) is committed to social justice, community building, and healing for self-identified racialized and/or graduate students of colour at the intersections of gender, ability, age, class, religion, and sexuality at the University of Toronto. REC is committed to advocacy, scholarship, and activism. We are particularly interested in forming networks amongst graduate students of colour across the university in order to provide information, support, and resources. Our activities include regular meetings, social events, reading groups, community dinners, panels, and much more.

REC aims to be a safe space for women, trans people, non-binary gender/gender non-conforming individuals, and sick and disabled people of colour.
