Our Statement on the Discovery at Tk’emlups te Secwepemc First Nation
The discovery of 215 children’s bodies on the grounds of Kamloops Indian Residential School is both heartbreaking and shameful. The impact of this news is being deeply felt across ANHBC—in our houses, camps and in the communities we belong to. There are no words that feel appropriate for the pain and suffering of affected families and their communities and of residential school survivors broadly, particularly when their lives and futures have been so horrifically altered. And although it isn’t enough, our thoughts and hearts are with Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation, and all Indigenous communities across Canada.

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.”
