Black Lives Matter.
The town of Kentville supports the Black Lives Matter movement.
Racism exists within our systems. There is a false sense that racism is about name calling, violence, or blatant and obvious discrimination, but it is so much more and we need to put a stop to it.
To our black citizens and neighbours we stand with you. We commit to making the necessary changes within our organization and community. We urge all citizens to educate themselves and commit to doing the work required of them as individuals, business owners, employees and employers, to stop racism in all its forms.
We have compiled a list of resources and posted them here for the benefit of our community.
We hear you. We will not be silent. We will make a difference. We are with you in solidarity to end racism.
-Sandra Snow, Mayor of Kentville
