Stop Islamophobia

March 15, 2024

As we commemorate the International Day to Combat Islamophobia, the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour (NSFL) firmly reasserts its unwavering dedication to battling hate, discrimination, and all forms of bigotry. Our unions tirelessly work yearly to uphold this commitment.

Recognizing that Islamophobia is not just an abstract concept but a distressing reality for many, our unions steadfastly combat Islamophobia as a crucial part of our broader fight against systemic racism and racial discrimination.

It is paramount to us that the richly diverse experiences of Muslim communities are recognized and reflected in our unions’ everyday practices and policies. Today, we take a moment to look deep inside ourselves and evaluate our Anti-Racism Strategies, engaging our members in this vital conversation to ensure that individuals of all faiths can practice their religion freely and without fear.

We understand that our work must extend beyond words. We are committed to taking concrete actions to protect communities from hate-motivated crimes and to enhance security at places of worship.

At the NSFL, we recognize that diversity is a reality, but inclusion is a choice we consciously make. Each day, we strive to foster more diverse, safe, and welcoming communities for all. Today and every day, we stand united in our fight against Islamophobia.
