International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
Turkish Society of Canada participated to the “International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination” event organized by York Regional Police on Sunday April 12, 2015 where over 1000 guests attended.
Turkish Society of Canada set up a booth with its volunteers, interacted with many diverse ethnic and civil communities and provided them information about Turkish culture and heritage. We exhibited traditional Turkish art and hand crafts and demonstrated rug weaving to the visitors.
Turkish Society of Canada volunteers also had opportunities to communicate with several ethnic community leaders and politicians. We believe these events will help the increased visibility of Turkish Community.
