United Way Central Alberta Statement in Support of the 2SLGBTQ+ Community
As a national network of local community builders, United Way Centraides are committed to ensuring Canada becomes a truly equitable, safe, and inclusive place, particularly for racialized and marginalized people in our communities.
The growing influence of hateful views and extremism stands in the way of our belief that everyone in every community should have the opportunity to thrive. This is especially true for children and youth, who deserve to learn, grow, and thrive in safe environments, free from hate, intolerance, and discrimination in all its forms.
We continue our allyship with members of 2SLGBTQ+ communities across the country and stand against expressions of hate and exclusion.
If you or anyone you know is struggling with the impact of what you are witnessing or experiencing, please call 211 or visit 211.ca to be connected to local mental health services in your community.
