International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination
March 21, 2022
The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury is committed to the belief that equal opportunity and treatment should exist for all people; and
Every person has the right to realize their potential, regardless of race, colour, national or ethnic origin; and to live at all times in conditions of dignity, respect and peace; and
Racial discrimination is a universal issue that divides communities and threatens the political, social, economic and cultural foundations on which our cities and towns are built; and
The General Assembly of the United Nations has designated March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination; and
The elimination of racism and racial discrimination can be accomplished through understanding and respect for the dignity of all people, and is the social and moral responsibility of each person.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim March 21, 2022 as INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
