As protests and civil unrest unfolds across North America in the wake of George Floyd’s horrific death, we are reminded of the harm and racism black people have experienced throughout history to present day. As a children’s aid society, we share in that history. These recent gut-wrenching events serve as a call to action to end anti-black racism and dismantle racist systems, structures and institutions.
As an organization, we pledge our steadfast commitment to take action to address systemic racism and oppression and embed equity, diversity and inclusion in all areas of our operations.
Our thoughts are with those who have experienced pain and loss during this very difficult time.
