As an organization we are committed to creating and fostering safe, inclusive spaces for all members of our communities. We hold diversity and equity practices as foundational in our coalition. We strive to make our programs, spaces, and practices equitable and inclusive. We acknowledge that discrimination occurs on individual and systemic levels to further marginalize designated groups. Our organization is open and welcome to individuals and groups regardless of race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, nationality, place of origin, colour, ethnicity, culture, citizenship, mental health, religion or faith, socio-economic status or marital status. We want to celebrate the notion of difference, as it only strengthens our individual and collective decision making ability and the richness of our neighbourhoods.
