On this National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we demand action from our elected officials. We demand that all children are taught the true history of the land upon which we live. We stand in solidarity with and alongside all people across this land in demanding justice, accountability and equity. We are calling for a fair, unbiased justice system which includes reparations from any government and authority involved in violence against racialized communities, particularly black and indigenous communities.This a a day to honour residential school survivors and their families and to remember those that didn’t make it.

On April 4 we commemorate Refugee Rights Day in Canada. It is an opportunity to bring attention to the advances made in the protection of refugee rights in this country, but also a time to learn about the threats to those rights.
This year, the occasion is especially significant, due to the agreement just reached by Canada and the United States to expand the Safe Third Country Agreement, or STCA.
