United Against Racism and Discrimination

Shauit, Maritza, Jonathan Émile, Paul Cargnello, Remy Picasso
& DJ Lady Oracle

3rd Edition: Parc Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Saturday, Sept 10, 2022, 6 pm – 10 pm

In 2018 and 2020, citizens of Montreal came together for a concert in a show of solidarity to speak out against racism, discrimination, police brutality, and hate. Now, in 2022, systemic racism remains a problem in our institutions in Canada, in Quebec, and in Montreal. Once again, it is time to respond with action and with solidarity. Montreal Vs. Racisme is families, artists, and ordinary citizens united in the common desire to yell and to sing loudly and clearly that racism and discrimination will never have a place in our streets, in our neighbourhoods, or in our society.

“After two editions of the MTL Vs Racisme show in 2018 & 2020, we’re back for another round this September. We understand the importance as artists to speak out against racism and discrimination, and will continue to use our voices for the cause. We’re super happy to bring together some of Montreal’s finest musical luminaries, and we’re proud to be raising funds for Resilience MTL. See you at the show!” – Paul Cargnello, founder MTL Vs Racisme

This time around, MTV Vs Racisme will be back with a concert where people will have the opportunity to hear talented Montreal artists and to support Resilience Montreal, a Montreal organization that is doing important work to combat systemic racism and provide services to those who have been affected by it.

The evening of music features Innu rock-reggae sensation Shauit, franco-pop songstress Maritza, Jamaican-Canadian and Tuff Gong international recording artist Jonathan Émile, Montreal’s most prolific songwriter Paul Cargnello, NDG up-and-coming rap luminary Remy Picasso, and DJ Lady Oracle spinning funk soul and hip-hop.

Raising funds for Resilience Montreal: A collaboration between the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal and Nazareth Community, Resilience Montreal is a low-barrier service open to everyone, providing food and shelter as well as mental health and medical support services and access to a multitude of other resources.
