International Day for the Elimination of Discrimination March 21st 2019

"In 1966, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed March 21st as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The UN Assembly called on the international community to strengthen its efforts to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination. The recent tragedy in New Zealand reminds us all that racial discrimination kills. Sadly, it is not an isolated event. Quebec City, Charleston, Pittsburgh, Finsbury Park, and countless more can attest to this." - CUPW

We stand with our fellow unions; we stand with our members, and we stand with our communities as a whole. Enough is enough. We are all born as equals; equals in dignity, equals in rights, equal in the fact that we all have the opportunity at a successful future.

Let's make the elimination of discrimination not just a day, but an every day. If you see discrimination taking place, speak up, be empathetic, and let us help each other out. We can all be leaders in ending discrimination. Together, we can change the world.

If you see discrimination taking place, or if you feel you are being discriminated against, take a stand, give us a call 204-984-9470. We are strong through solidarity.
