A Message from Kahir Lalji, Executive Director of United Way SIBC:

In light of current events, United Way Southern Interior BC would like to make it abundantly clear that there is no place for violence or discrimination in the communities we live in. Our collective efforts in creating welcoming, inclusive and caring communities transcend race, creed and gender, and we must come together to take a stance on any form of discrimination. With knowledge, education and action, we must eradicate systemic racism and inherent biases. Discrimination in all its forms is an #UNIGNORABLE issue and we call on all of you to combat this by showing your #locallove.

Stand up. Be informed. Let’s work together.
