The Urban Alliance on Race Relations (UARR) is a non-profit organization offering educational programs and research that are critical in addressing racism in society. Their work reaches the community, private and public sectors across the Greater Toronto Area. Their latest endeavor is the Police Are Not The Answer campaign which calls on municipalities to reallocate police budgets towards community initiatives. The UARR racial equity in education project coordinator, Lily Obeng, shares more about the campaign and the premise of defunding the police.
