The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination marks the anniversary of the March 21, 1960 massacre in Sharpeville, South Africa, when police opened fire and killed 69 young students at a peaceful demonstration against the apartheid "pass laws". The international day was proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1966 when the Assembly called upon the international community to redouble its efforts to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination. Canada was one of the first countries to support the March 21 initiative, launching its first annual campaign against racial discrimination in 1989. HCCI is committed to working with our community partners to eradicate racism and create a welcoming and inclusive community.

We hope you will be able to join us.
