March 21st: International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

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. 
 
This March 21, the PSAC calls on all members to stand in solidarity with racialized communities and to continue the struggle for social justice and human rights. The PSAC encourages members to hold events that raise awareness of racism and racial discrimination.
 
In solidarity,
 
Neville David
Director for Racially Visible Members
 
Jeannie Baldwin
Regional Executive Vice-President
