Our Statement on Anti-racism
Frog Hollow is committed to fighting for social justice and, especially with the egregious examples of racism that have been appearing in Canada, the US and around the world, we stand together with those suffering from racism. The Association of Neighbourhood Houses of BC (ANHBC), of which Frog Hollow is part, has prepared the attached anti-racism statement and support it. We need to work harder every day to counter racism at individual and systemic levels, in all aspects of our lives.
The following statement is a prelude by ANHBC to the anti-racism statement:
“On behalf of the Association of Neighbourhood Houses of BC Board of Directors and Senior Leadership Team. As an organization that has navigated over 125 years of Canadian history, we recognize the importance of standing in solidarity with our community members fighting for their rights, and the rights of others.
We commit to looking at our complicity in the oppression of Indigenous people as part of our own 125 year old story, and to change the practices and policies built from colonization that we continue to benefit from today.”
