OUR COMMITMENT

In light of the current global demonstrations and protests in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, it is critical we understand the magnitude of the need for these systemic oppressions that have kept Black bodies from liberation. We are not free, until we are all free and Black Lives have always mattered. Community Impact is dedicated to meaningful allyship with the Black activists, artists and communities we get to work with and for. We are dedicated to standing against anti-Black racism. 

We would also like to talk about our responsibility and not only acknowledge our responsibility to Indigenous sovereignty.  We work with communities on Turtle Island, which existed long before Upper and Lower Canada were even “found.” Situated in Toronto, Community Impact serves on the traditional territories that have been home to the Huron-Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Today, we operate in the meeting place of Tkaronto, which is still the home too many Indigenous people.

 

Our Indigenous people have inherited deep intergenerational trauma and been severely neglected by Canada, we must remember to voice this injustice. We are each responsible to carry out the work needed in the spirit of true reconciliation.
