HPAR Canada is an organization committed to working vigorously for the freedom and justice of black healthcare workers. This organization was founded by healthcare professionals to "declare anti-black racism a public health crisis". This is a comprehensive action that requires our urgent attention.
HPAR Canada is based on the following principles:
We are committed to building and nurturing a beloved community that is bonded together through a beautiful struggle that is restorative, not depleting.
We are committed to practicing empathy; with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.
We are committed to embodying and practicing justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another.
We are committed to acknowledging, respecting and celebrating difference(s) and commonalities.
We see ourselves as part of the global Black family and we are aware of the different ways we are impacted or privileged as Black folk who exist in different parts of the world.
