On Tuesday, March 21st, dubbed the United Nation’s International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, community members are invited to come together and celebrate diversity while also building a more inclusive and just community.
“The elimination of racism is an important goal that we all need to keep striving to attain,” said Mayor Christian Provenzano. “I’m pleased to be taking part in the local observance on March 21st and I’d like to thank all of the community partners for their work and initiative to organize the day’s events.”
Events are scheduled throughout the day that will provide a variety of ways in which members of the community can share their experiences and perspectives, with the objective of building a sense of community and promoting positive dialogues.
“March 21st marks the United Nation’s International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination,” said Dr. Richard McCutcheon, Academic Dean of Algoma U. “I’m very pleased that the University as well as various community partners have come together to provide leadership and raise awareness of this important concern. This opportunity for a renewed commitment to take action individually and collectively is an important step toward building a more inclusive university and, more broadly, Sault Ste. Marie community.”
