Recent events in Canada and the United States have ignited discussion and action focused on the experiences of anti-Black racism. The work needed to dismantle anti-Black racism is complicated, and differentiated depending on our own identities. It will require us to be committed to supporting each other and holding each other accountable.
With this in mind, we have curated resources to assist our Catholic Education Community as we work collaboratively to address individual and systemic racism in all its forms.
We will continue our commitments, which include ongoing collaboration with our Curriculum department, Religion Coordinator, our Human Rights and Equity advisor, the Human Rights and Equity advisory committee, along with continuously looking to cultivate and foster relationships with our Black student initiative groups, students, staff, and community. We also commit to examining and dismantling our own systemic racism.
We will continue to share our journey of allyship as accomplices in the work for Justice, with the inevitable ups and the downs, so that we can remain accountable and steadfast in our work to combat anti-Black racism.
