Black Lives Matter.
The Ontario Humanist Society stands in solidarity with the Black community.
There is no room for hatred or bigotry in our lives. We have an ethical duty to one another, as fellow human beings, and as members of our communities, to combat racism and discrimination in all forms. Every individual should hold themselves accountable for their personal past. Each of us is responsible for our actions moving forward.
We ask OHS members and fellow Humanists to work with, but more importantly, listen to the Black community. By hearing and supporting the Black community, we can help to fight racial hatred, discrimination, and injustice, with meaningful action towards making the world a better place.
Change does not happen unless we all make it happen together.
President, Ontario Humanist Society
