Enactus Laurier stands with the Black community now and always following the senseless murder of George Floyd last week in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is our duty as leaders in social change to take a stand against all those who perpetrate hate and racism in our communities. We are committed to standing up for our fellow brothers and sisters who have been victims of discrimination, oppression and anything but love because of the colour of their skin.
“The time is always right to do what is right” – Martin Luther King Jr.
As members of both the Laurier and Enactus communities, we are the next generation of change-makers, and we have the power to come together to create a better normal. For the Floyd family, and all the families that have been torn apart as a result of racism. For the trailblazers who live and die for equality. And for our future generations – so that they grow up in a World of love and unity, not fear and hatred.
The dialogue must continue beyond social media or our website. Here are some things that you can do:
- Support Black-owned businesses & organizations
- Educate & Reflect
- SPEAK UP when you witness racism in your community
- Sign petitions and donate if you can
Team Enactus Laurier
