Black Lives Matter
CUPE Local 1764 stands in full solidarity with Black communities in the Unites States, Canada and around the world.
As we have witnessed recent events in the United States, people of colour continue to experience oppression, discrimination, criminalization and even murder.
We stand in solidarity with the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement and we mourn the loss of loved ones, members of their communities and the ongoing discrimination, racial profiling and hatred black people continue to be subjected to. We recognize also that racism occurs right here in Canada and this hurts and divides all of us. We stand with Black people, people of colour and Indigenous people against all forms of racism. We demand that it must stop, and must stop NOW!
