Greetings UARR Community, Family and Friends,
On the 150th anniversary of Confederation we at UARR recognize the Indigenous Territories on which we live and the violence against our First Peoples that accompanied the creation of the Canadian State.
We celebrate all the people who have come to Canada escaping persecution in other lands and all that people from diverse regions, ethnicities and faiths have contributed to bringing about just social change in our society. We hope that this anniversary will inspire more commitment to ending social inequality, to challenging Islamophobia, Anti-Black Racism, Racism against our First Nations and other People of Colour, Anti-Semitism, Transphobia and Homophobia. We hope that this anniversary marks sincere progress toward the fulfillment of the 94 recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Wishing you all a weekend filled with community, love and warmth.
UARR Board of Directors
