The virtual meeting takes place on Saturday Nov. 19, 2022, from 1–4 p.m. EST. It will be hosted by Debra Merrier, CUPE National Diversity Vice-President representing Indigenous workers and Aubrey Gonsalves, CUPE National Diversity Vice-President representing Black and racialized workers.

Putting our anti-racism strategy into action

This is the second national meeting to put CUPE’s Anti-Racism Strategy into action. A key goal of the strategy is increasing the representation of Black, Indigenous and racialized members in our union, which we are doing by creating dedicated spaces to organize.

On November 19, join other Black, Indigenous and racialized CUPE members and allies to share, make connections, and brainstorm actions that build an anti-racist labour movement. Allies are invited to this meeting because every CUPE member has a vital role to play in this important work.

Whether you’re a grassroots member or sit on your local’s executive, this is your opportunity to help build CUPE’s union power by fighting racism.

We’ll be guided by CUPE’s diversity vice-presidents, as well as our union’s Anti-Racism Strategy and commitment to Truth and Reconciliation. When members with lived experience and allies connect, change can happen.
