    We’re looking forward to this conversation and see that when it comes to intersection of racism, criminal justice and health, Canada is not immune from critiques as well. Many of our members were inspired by your leadership and courage in your February 2015 Forum on this issue. That’s why we have organized a conference in Toronto October 23 to October 24 at the University of Toronto to discuss racial health inequities, as well as the systemic and institutional racism that causes it. To find out more check out our website at http://www.racialjusticematters.com and purchase tickets at http://www.racialjusticematters.eventbrite.com.

    This panel was convened in February 2015 and we asked them to gather again to examine what has or has not changed since that discussion. That video can be seen here: https://theforum.sph.harvard.edu/events/race-criminal-justice-and-health/. There also is a transcript of that event posted there.

    We now know that birth to age 3 represents that most crucial time of brain development and that the brain goes on to develop until the early 20’s. Disruptions during this time of birth to age 3 – neglect, domestic violence, risky behaviors by parents, ….If we were to look back at these 265 deaths are we going to see that any of them had protective factors in place during these first 3 years? Perhaps, we need to go back to ground zero and realize that your average Black man is behind the 8 ball since birth and that what we are seeing today is the long term result of no early intervention in the first years of life. It seems we are missing the prevention window, even the secondary window is closing. Trying to handle or fix this at a tertiary level seems futile.
