We believe that racism and discrimination have no place in our communities.
We are inspired by Calgarians and those across Canada and the world who are standing together in this fight against racism and police brutality. We all have a role to play. We encourage our members to think about what their role is in eliminating racism and discrimination in our communities.
We understand that as an organization we still have a lot to learn but we are dedicated to that learning and becoming better allies, as well as sharing information on resources and organizations who are leading in this work on anti-racism and equity in our communities and beyond.
