What is policy?

Imagining Change

Learn how you imagine change to create policies that positively affect BIPOC communities. Policy maker and OCAD University Professor, Dr. Kathy Moscue describes how through imagination you solve the five flavours of problems and thus positively impact a large number of people.


Amplify Your Voice

Jacquie Shaw introduces you to more politicians who share the most impactful policies they made to support their communities: the Honorable Jean Augustine, MPP Buhtila Karpoche, activist Jackie Ndlovu, and politician Kerry-Anne Douglas-Powell.
