KIP launches lawn signs to fight racial discrimination

KIP launches lawn signs to fight racial discrimination

by Kingston Immigration Partnership Admin

May 24, 2018


Kingston is a welcoming community that values diversity, but both racism and discrimination are ongoing challenges within our community. To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and as part of making Kingston a more welcoming, inclusive and diverse community, 500 of these lawn signs were available for pick-up free of charge at eight locations across our city: Kingston Community Health Centres, KEYS Job Centre, City Hall, City of Kingston Housing and Social Services Department, Artillery Park Aquatic Centre, Invista Centre, City offices 1211 John Counter Blvd and ACFOMI.

These signs are meant to fight racism and discrimination by spreading a welcoming message to newcomers. The signs read, "No matter where you are from, we're happy you're our neighbour" in Spanish, French, English, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese.
