#MarchOutRacism

We all want to live in welcoming and inclusive communities. Racism has no place in them. March 21, the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, is a time to remind ourselves of the harms and heroes of the past and present. We need to understand what racism is, and its impact (recognize it), so we can act (reject it!).

Visit our events calendar to see events for March 21! 
If you have any events planned don't forget to share it with us, in our calendar.
