Disrupt racism

“We won’t stand by when health outcomes are worse for residents who are Black, Indigenous and people of colour.”
In spring of 2020, reports of the disproportionate number of COVID-19 cases in marginalized communities was compounded by the news of the brutal and callous disregard for human life south of the border. This was heart wrenching.
Understanding the pain of these tragedies and recognizing other incidents that have taken place in Toronto and in our own community is only the beginning. The trauma of racism which is deeply rooted in our history and our institutions is a shameful legacy that affects us daily.
At Black Creek CHC, we are committed to advocating and addressing social determinants of health such as poverty, racism, and inequality. We stand against all forms of intolerance and hate. Many of us are already doing this important work.
