Antiracism work in the province of Ontario is currently under attack, and we must respond NOW, collectively.
A tragic incident involving a former TDSB Principal is being misused to fuel a right-wing backlash against equity and anti-racism work in our province.
We cannot stand idly by as the progress we have tirelessly fought for in the battle against systemic racism and discrimination is threatened. Anti-racist work is essential in preventing harm and violence against our children and the most vulnerable members of all racialized communities.
Our Call To Action:
We, the Black communities of Ontario, are united as we address the concerning attack on anti-racism work in our province. We demand that this essential work must not be allowed to be halted or stalled under any circumstances; our communities have suffered for far too long.
We demand that politicians take immediate and concrete steps to address our concerns and demonstrate their unwavering commitment to anti-racism work in Ontario.
📣 Urgent Call to Action 📣— Parents of Black Children (@PoBCAdvocate) July 28, 2023
We Black communities of Ontario, demand unwavering support for anti-oppression work. Recent events won't halt our fight against systemic racism. We refuse to let our decades of work be devalued and used as a scapegoat. #NOTYOURSCAPEGOAT pic.twitter.com/f7BejCudhW
