BLACK LIVES MATTER
As countless people have taken to the streets across the United States, Canada and the World, and raise voices in response to the killing of George Floyd and countless others, none of stands on the sidelines as passive observers. We're all responsible for our society and for the justice and compassion that succeeds or fails. At this time of sorrow and anger we stand alongside the families of
George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery
and so many others named and unnamed.
And we recall the countless other BIPoC (Black, Indigenous & People of Colour) lives that have been ended by white violence. It is imperative that we transform the toxic views that feed racism and other forms of injustice and hatred in our country. And we must address today and every day the reality that we we live in a culture of oppression stemming from the very origins of our nation. This has continued throughout our country's history.
This is why we are saying
BLACK LIVES MATTER.
BIPoC LIVES MATTER.
BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER.
We have to face individually and collectively the truth of the presence of discrimination in our country and not turn away from the great harms against BIPoC People in our nation. We have a responsibility to uproot our own racism and transform the systems of oppression that feed bigotry in our society.

Stop Asian Hate
Vigil 7:30pm, April 5, 2021 on Zoom
Since the start of the pandemic, anti-Asian hate crimes have skyrocketed across Canada and the US. Our Asian community, especially vulnerable elderly people, have been subjected to violent attacks and death. The Atlanta area spa murders shone a light on violence against Asian women. We hope to see all of you in the future, continuing to support and advocate for antiracism and to end hate.
