CALL's Diversity, Inclusion, & Decolonization Committee is shaken and troubled by the shocking attack on a three generation Muslim family in London, Ontario on June 6, 2021.
Our hearts go out to the 9-year-old survivor, the friends and relatives of the victims, and to the Muslim Community.
Hate has no place in a kind and just society.
Islamophobia and anti-Muslim sentiment run counter to the rights and freedoms Canada represents - the very reason for which many of us and our families came to this land.
This terrorist attack is a reminder that we must do all we can to overcome racism in our community, workplace, and profession.
This senseless act shows that we all need to do our part in building a society that embraces the diversity in each of us and provides for inclusion so that we all have a sense of belonging in a world where equality is not lost.
