Statement: Black Lives Matter
A message from the CEO
Racist violence targeted at members of the Black community reminds us that silence in the face of injustice is never an option. Cystic Fibrosis Canada stands with the Black community. We at Cystic Fibrosis Canada will not remain silent when it comes to racism. Black Lives Matter.
Cystic Fibrosis Canada commits to being an ally in the fight against racism. We don’t have all the answers. We commit to listening and learning. We resolve to use our collective sense of humanity to foster a society that works to eliminate systemic racism. We all deserve to live in a society that does not tolerate racism, prejudice and injustice.
As a starting point, Cystic Fibrosis Canada is implementing a new diversity and inclusion policy that will promote and nurture a diverse and inclusive work culture where differences, equity and fairness are highly valued. We will bring an anti-racist lens to our work, and we will speak up in our coalitions and partnerships to push ourselves and other organizations to make needed change.
We encourage everyone to continue the vital conversations that have started, to make change and to amplify the voices of the Black community now and into the future.
