In 1966, the United Nations proclaimed March 21st as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.   While there has been some progress with respect to racial justice, racism persists in Canadian society, there has also been some erosion of human rights over the past decade.

Dear Sisters and Brothers, Although we need to celebrate the many achievements made towards equality, there remains a lot of work.  To this day, women are being denied equal pay for equal work and they are subject to discrimination and threats when they hold positions of power.  We can look in our own country where Alberta Premier Rachel Notley faces threats on a regular basis – because she’s a woman. Regardless of political affiliation, religious belief or even sexual orientation, women should be treated equally, period! Take action
