Niagara Women’s Enterprise Center stands in solidarity with the Islamic Community after the recent tragic events that took place in London, Ontario.
We offer our deepest sympathies and support to the family and friends of those who were killed and injured in what London Police Services has described as a premeditated hate crime. Our hearts break as well for the entire Muslim community and members of our diverse NWEC community of students and graduates.
We stand with the Muslim community in condemning acts of hate and violence. Racism has no place in Canada. Diversity is our strength, and we must do everything in our power to stamp out the deeply rooted and systemic issues of hate in our communities.
We all share a responsibility to speak out against acts of violence and social injustice and to be part of a solution intent on opposing hatred with actionable compassion, solidarity and empathy.
