We are committed to ending racism in all its forms. In the spring we created a task force to address anti-Black Racism, which has been meeting since July 2020. Since then we have discussed our main priorities and finalized our terms of reference. In the coming weeks we plan to engage with our student groups and key stakeholders to determine ways they wish to be involved. We also plan to organize several activities and events to address ongoing anti-Black racism.
Show Us Your Pride!
We all missed the big Pride Parade this year, but it doesn't mean we can't continue to make a space to celebrate! If you have a favourite image from the parade, or a story or anecdote you'd like to share, please send it to us and we'll include it on our public celebration pages.
