The Labour movement celebrates Black History Month and recognizes the need for an ongoing commitment to fight systemic racism and violence in the workplace.
Library Workers were honoured to host Desmond Cole as the keynote speaker at the Ontario Library Workers Conference last year (pictured wearing the official "Library Warrior" tee-shirt).
We urge Torontonians to support community organizations that fight against systemic racism and violence.
