Justice for Soli: Mental Health and Incarceration in Canada

January 28 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


In December 2016, Soleiman Faqiri, who suffered from schizophrenia, died while incarcerated at an Ontario prison during an incident with correctional officers. No charges were laid against the guards involved and three years later, his family is still fighting for answers and for justice.

Soleiman’s brother, Yusuf Faqiri, will speak about his brother’s life and death, and the crisis of mental health in Canadian prisons. An opportunity for Q&A will follow.
