Anti-Black Racism Statement
A message from Durham Children’s Aid Society and the Office of Equity, Communications and Community Partnership
We recognize that people of African descent represent a distinct group whose human rights must be promoted and protected. We stand in solidarity with the Black community and commit to intentional change through agitation and advocacy for dignity, racial equity and social justice.
Durham CAS Community Advisory Council Statement
Our Canadian history speaks of the brutal transplantation of bodies in the legacy that is Black Enslavement; the continued strength and resiliency of Black Peoples to advocate, overcome and rise above oppression and recognizes Resolution 68/237 of the United Nations 2014 Declaration of the decade for people of African descent and their right to recognition, justice and development.
