Human Rights Committee Statement on Black Lives Matter
The NSGEU’s Human Rights Committee condemns acts of anti-Black racism we are witnessing not only in the United States and other parts of the world, but in our own country, province and communities.
We stand in solidarity with those who have experienced trauma caused by anti-Black racism. We are outraged and condemn the injustices we have witnessed recently and throughout history.
We are more committed than ever to highlighting and promoting human rights issues, and to lead efforts to educate our members on how to recognize and combat anti-black racism in their workplaces and communities.
We stand by and reiterate the statements from the NSGEU in committing to continue to protect and advocate for more diversity, equality and inclusiveness, and to call out hate, prejudice and racism when and wherever it occurs.
We believe Black Lives Matter and support the mandate of the Black Lives Matter movement.
