Black Lives Matter: Enough is enough

The Grace Doherty Library condemns violence and racism toward black people and all people of color. We are in an unprecedented time in history with all that is going on in America and beyond. We are facing numerous challenges and tragedies.We stand firm in rejecting social injustices and urge the Centre community to join us in countering racism and violence against Black people and all disenfranchised groups. It is our desire to end internal, interpersonal, and systematic forms of racism and all other forms of oppression. During these difficult times, we reinforce our mission of inclusion and diversity, and support the communities against injustice and racism. It is our belief that everyone must be respected and heard.
