Dear OVC community,
Like all of you, I am distressed and saddened about the long history of systematic and systemic racism that has culminated in the events happening around our world.
These disturbing events of oppression call each of us to reflect and act on what we can do to help address racism, and in fact all attitudes and behaviours that divide us. We may be separated from the unrest in the United States by an international border, but we in Canada have our own battle with racism that is by no means won.
