Colour of Change Network members - here we are at Day 15 - the mid-point of "30in30" - please act, post and share !!


"30in30 - From Remembrance to Equity, Inclusion & Human Rights"


DAY 15 - November 25 - UDHR Article #15 - "(1) Everyone has the right to a nationality. (2) No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality nor denied the right to change his nationality"


In the spirit of "30in30" here are 3 ADVOCACY OPPORTUNITIES/ACTION ITEMS we ask you to consider -

1) Call for Employment Equity - Given the long existing colour-coded and other labour market inequities across Canada - and in the context of the current global focus on anti-Indigenous, anti-Black and anti-Asian racisms - one of the most powerful tools for long-term equity and fairness is strong Employment Equity legislation - federally, provincially, territorially, municipally - frameworks that are restored ( federally ), comprehensive, expanded ( Indigenous Peoples, peoples of colour, women, persons with (dis)abilities AND 2SLGBTQ+ individuals ), appropriately and consistently disaggregated and targeted in their application and implementation, resourced, monitored AND enforced.

As we "build back better" we can realise this critical policy objective ( see information pieces attached to this email ) through -

- adding "employment equity" consistent obligations and conditionality to all economic recovery, social and physical infrastructure investments and financial transfers
- legislated employment equity regimes
- community benefit agreements (CBA's) which include employment equity obligations and requirements, AND
- fair and equitable public procurement contractor provisions
- other !?

We can move this foundational and critical policy objective forward - for a fair, equitable, resilient and sustainable economy and shared future for all !! Tweet, email, call @JustinTrudeau @CanadianPM #PMTrudeau, Finance Minister @cafreeland @fordnation @rodphillips01 - other relevant Ministers - and your MP and MPP/MLA today !!  We need a true level playing field and a real merit-based labour market in Canada !! #racism #racist #racializedpoverty #cdnpoli #onpoli #equity #equality #inclusion #diversity#antiracism #antiracism

2) November 20 is World Children's Day - Did you know some low-income children in Canada are excluded from poverty reduction benefits ?  Parents with precarious immigration status are excluded from the Canada Child Benefit (CCB), which was introduced as a poverty reduction measure. Even Canadian-born children of such parents are denied access to the CCB. Read details in the Colour of Poverty - Colour of Change Fact Sheets on racial disparities !  Join Colour of Poverty - Colour of Change #racesEDJ and Call on the government of Canada to include ALL children in the Canada Child Benefit - Tweet, email, call @JustinTrudeau @CanadianPM #PMTrudeau, Finance Minister @cafreeland and your MP today. End the CCB exclusion !! #racism & #racializedpoverty #childpoverty

3) November 22 is National Housing Day - here are three things you can do to honour and make real the Right to Housing in Canada - https://caeh.ca/3-things-national-housing-day/

International Human Rights Day 2020 - December 10 -

The basic idea of human rights is that each one of us, no matter who we are or where we are born, is entitled to the same basic rights and freedoms. That may sound straightforward enough, but it gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice. What exactly are the basic human rights? Who gets to pick them? Who enforces them - and how ?  See - What are the universal human rights ? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDgIVseTkuE&t=2s

2020 theme - Recover Better - Stand Up for Human Rights !!

Universal Declaration of Human Rights - StandUp4HumanRights - http://www.standup4humanrights.org/en/

Human Rights must be at the centre of the post COVID-19 world

The COVID-19 crisis has been fuelled by deepening poverty, rising inequalities, structural and entrenched discrimination and other gaps in human rights protection. Only measures to close these gaps and advance human rights can ensure we fully recover and build back a world that is better, more resilient, just, and sustainable.

  • End discrimination of any kind - Structural discrimination and racism have fuelled the COVID-19 crisis. Equality and non-discrimination are core requirements for a post-COVID world.
  • Address inequalities - To recover from the crisis, we must also address the inequality pandemic. For that, we need to promote and protect economic, social, and cultural rights. We need a new social contract for a new era.
  • Encourage participation and solidarity - We are all in this together. From individuals to governments, from civil society and grass-roots communities to the private sector, everyone has a role in building a post-COVID world that is better for present and future generations. We need to ensure the voices of the most affected and vulnerable inform the recovery efforts.
  • Promote sustainable development : We need sustainable development for people and planet. Human rights, the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement are the cornerstone of a recovery that leaves no one behind.

"30in30 - From Remembrance to Equity, Inclusion & Human Rights"

"30in30 - From Remembrance to Equity, Inclusion & Human Rights" - the ongoing effort to get all Canadians to pause and consider the real meaning and underlying significance of Remembrance Day - as well as its visceral connection to the International Day for Human Rights ! There are 30 days between November 11 (Remembrance Day) and December 10 (International Day for Human Rights) - with December 10th being the anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) !


As the UDHR has 30 Articles - one for each of the 30 days that separate these two profound moments in our shared national and international consciousness - "30in30 - From Remembrance to Equity, Inclusion & Human Rights" is a shared opportunity to consider each of the Articles - day by day - as we travel from "remembrance" to why it was and is that we engage(d) in such pain, sacrifice, suffering and violent forms of conflict resolution - to the preservation and pursuit of freedom, equity, inclusion, fairness and human rights !!
