Mending the Chasm Announce Subsidy for Local Non-Profits and Community Groups
The Inside Out Project: Our Future is Anti-Racist is for Halton Area Leaders Ready to Build Inclusive Cultures, From the Inside Out.
BURLINGTON, December 2, 2020.
Today, Community Conflict Resolution Services of Halton (CCRS Halton) in partnership with Mending the Chasm announce a subsidy to help non-profits and community groups participate in The Inside Out Project: Our Future is Anti-Racist. This multi-dimensional education and action-oriented program aims to build a more inclusive COVID-19 response capacity for the charitable sector in Halton Region.
“We are excited to offer this subsidy, made possible by the Government of Canada and the United Way of Halton & Hamilton’s Emergency Community Support Fund, to charities and community groups who are committed to promoting positive change within our community, but who may find that resources are a barrier to participation in The Inside Out Project” explains Nina Henley, Board President for CCRS Halton.
We have a select number of subsidies available to organizations and community groups in Halton who are working to adapt current processes, procedures, and services to more equitably serve Black, Indigenous, and racialized citizens in Halton during the COVID-19 Pandemic and beyond.
“In order to embrace the innovative power and potential that comes from anti-racist and inclusive cultures, we need to empower our leaders to learn how to build inclusive cultures from the inside out, explains Leena Sharma Seth, Founder and Principal of Mending the Chasm. “The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the impact of existing socio-economic disparities for BIBOC (Black, Indigenous and Bodies of Culture) identifying communities.”
