Anti Racism

Message from the CFUW Board
Grace Hollett, National President
June 9, 2020

 

The CFUW Board is saddened and shocked by the tragic death of George Floyd and this has led many of us to join in protests against racial injustice. There is no justification for the actions that killed George Floyd or that kills and discriminates against many other black women, men and children. 
 
Although not as blatant, the ugliness and impact of racism in its many forms exists in Canada and this perpetuation of all forms of racial discrimination and oppression is a serious threat to fundamental human rights in Canada and throughout the world.
 
Silence in the face of injustice makes us all complicit; it is not enough to refrain from racism ourselves, we must speak out and advocate for an end to racism.  
 
We hope that members of CFUW are committed to creating a country and a world in which racial discrimination is no longer acceptable and in building an organization that is more culturally inclusive and diverse.
