Statement and Reflection on Anti-Black Racism, Oppression and Equity at Cycle Toronto

June 16, 2020

This past week Cycle Toronto's Black board members convened our senior leadership to raise concerns about systemic racism and equity issues in Cycle Toronto. We reflected on experiences of microaggressions experienced by Black community members, equity and diversity in hiring practices, engagement with racialized communities, policing and safety on rides, and how our broader advocacy analysis does not adequately respond to the systemic issues faced by Indigenous Peoples, Black communities, and People of Colour.
