The AWARE Simcoe board of directors has adopted the following  statement:

AWARE Simcoe recognizes that the injustices experienced by people of colour in our communities are a result of white privilege and are a legacy of North America’s history of colonialism and slavery.

Our organization began as an alliance with Indigenous activists based on our shared respect for water. That working relationship continues to this day and informs and enriches AWARE’s Vision.

AWARE Simcoe respects the inherent rights, dignity and potential of all human beings.
