Tomorrow, lets unite against racism

On March 21st join me and thousands across the country to #UniteAgainstRacism. r1

Dear Friends,

Today, I woke up to images pouring in from Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe where untold scores of death and suffering are occurring at the hands of Cyclone Idai, which the UN is calling the worst natural disaster in recorded history to occur in the Global South. Like many of us, I am still reeling from the news of 50 innocent people killed in last Friday’s terrorist attack at a Mosque in New Zealand.

It’s easy in moments like this to just blank out, to go inward, and close your heart to what seems unsolvable. That is why now more than ever we need to come together with heavy hearts and steely resolves. My brothers and sisters at Migrant Rights Network are mobilizing communities from coast to coast to #UniteAgainstRacism.... Will you join me this Thursday at a mobilization near you?

It is disheartening to see the alarming rise of pro-pipeline, anti-immigrant and anti-Indigenous protests in Canada at the same time as more and more migrants and refugees around the world are forced to leave their homes because of climate change. It makes me sick to hear some of our elected politicians use anti-immigrant and pro-fossil fuel rhetoric to divide us.

We know we cannot have climate justice without justice for migrants and refugees. We also know in our fight to keep fossil fuels in the ground, we need to respect Indigenous rights and center our movements in the simple teaching that water is life.

That is why I will join the Migrant Rights Network tomorrow to unite against racism, call for an end to xenophobia, and for migrant and climate justice solutions that will make our economy stronger and society better for everyone.

On March 21st, take action with thousands across the country. Join the movement to #UniteAgainstRacism.

I hope to see you on the streets tomorrow.

In respect and peace,

PS - My friend Atiya wrote this blog about the connection between the fight against climate change, xenophobia, and racism. Will you help me out by sharing it with your friends and family and asking them to take tomorrow to #UniteAgainstRacism?
