March 21: International Day for the Elimination of Racism
March 14, 2006, 11:13 a.m. EST
March 21 is a day to remember and reflect on the fact that racism is still part of our society. Trade unionists have an important role and responsibility to build a society free of racism.
The CAW committed to work with all its members and union locals to eliminate racism from workplaces, from communities and from within the union. “It’s an opportunity for us to recognize workers of colour, aboriginal workers, and the many activists who have carried on the struggle to eliminate racial discrimination,” CAW human rights director Raj Dhaliwal.
March 21 events are occurring across Canada and around the globe. For CAW members in the Toronto area, an event is planned for Sunday, March 19 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. at CAW Local 112 Hall located at 30 Tangiers Road in Downsview. Food, music and guest speakers are planned. All are welcome.
March 21 posters, leaflets & March 21 CAW National Executive Board statements on the issue are being distributed by many locals. For more information contact Raj Dhaliwal, cell 416-918-1960.
