"We were racially profiled in our workplace. We knew it was wrong so we stood up and filed a charge at the Human Rights Commission. Sometimes you will see only one person speak out on something that is hurting everyone.
My advice is to stand and unite as one. When you’re united and you stick together, you can’t just be targeted by employers."
"The stress took a physical toll which affected my mental health. I got hurt on the job, and I wasn’t getting better. I continued going to work, even though I was sick...I would like things to change for the young people who want to join the public service."
“Creating spaces for Black workers is critical to support our communities and build our power for social change. As a union leader, I am focused on anti-racism, building equity in the labour movement and strengthening the connection between labour and racialized communities. This involves organizing and education, using worker-centred engagement and community activism.”
