Survey Closes Friday, August 21st 2020
There is no place in Manitoba for racism and discrimination. All Manitobans - including Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) - deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has shone new light on the issue of systemic racism within government systems. Manitobans are standing up against this racism and are demanding justice for Black Manitobans, Indigenous Manitobans and People of Colour.
NDP MLA for St. Vital, Jamie Moses along with the Manitoba NDP Caucus, is launching an online questionnaire to allow Manitobans to provide feedback on the impacts and aspects of systemic racism in Manitoba. The feedback will form the basis of legislation Moses aims to introduce this fall to create a safer and more equal Manitoba for all families.
“People across the world are demanding elected leaders listen. It is long past time to address systemic racism – and one place we can start is our public services,” said Jamie Moses. “Systemic racism must be acknowledged and named by the Pallister government, and Manitobans are clear they want their voices heard. We are ready to hear from Manitobans about the need and ways to eliminate institutional and systemic racism in our public services.
