Niagara has signed onto the Coalition of Inclusive Municipalities.
“Today’s declaration … is a legal document that commits all of us to promoting social inclusion, working to establish policies that eradicate racism, discrimination and taking a stand to promote human rights and diversity,” said Bradley, who signed the declaration Friday with Niagara’s 12 mayors.
The signing was held in the new International Plaza at regional headquarters, which has not had an official opening due to COVID-19.
Bradley said as the plaza is designed to be “an open and public area that demonstrates our commitment to ensuring everyone is welcome in Niagara,” it was a fitting and appropriate inaugural use for it.
Several local community leaders spoke, including Liette Vasseur, local president of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, which oversees the Coalition of Inclusive Municipalities.
