IT EXISTS AND IT'S REAL.

JOIN US ON OUR JOURNEY TO WIN THE FIGHT AGAINST RACIAL PROFILING & SYSTEMIC RACISM.

In 2017, a UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent found that racial profiling is “endemic” in Canadian law enforcement, and urged the country to immediately discontinue this practice in all of its forms.

RED COALITION SYMBOLIZES
Red has a range of symbolic meanings, including life, health, vigor, war, courage, anger, love and religious fervor. The common thread is that all these require passion, and the "life force" that drives passion; is blood red. The term "coalition" is the denotation for a group formed when two or more people, factions, states, political parties, militaries etc. agree to work together temporarily in a partnership to achieve a common goal.
LOBBYING FOR CHANGE
We are asking the Minister of Public Safety Canada, to enact a legislation to prohibit racial profiling by law enforcement. Further to a declared prohibition, the proposed legislation would require a law enforcement agency to confirm that it has established and maintained adequate policies and procedures designed to eliminate racial profiling, in order to qualify for funding under any transfer payment program held by the Minister of Public Safety. 
WHAT IS RACIAL PROFILING?
Any action taken by one or more people in authority with respect to a person or group of persons, for reasons of safety, security or public order, that is based on actual or presumed membership in a group defined by race, colour, ethnic or national origin or religion. Taken without factual grounds or reasonable suspicion, these actions can result in the person or group being exposed to differential treatment.

ON-GOING WORK

We will continue to lobby and work hard to eradicate racial profiling, discrimination, hatred and systemic racism within Canada by pouring all
of our resources into combatting and defeating and in the end eliminating these biases that Indigenous People and people of color and members
of the Jewish & LGBTQ community have to face and endure in their every day lives.  We will openly express our concerns to the media on an on-going
basis and we encourage all associates, members, municipal and provincial advocacy groups to invoke your support, association and membership of
the Red Coalition; raising clarity and awareness of the movement to law enforcement, and to the Minister of Public Safety, that we will no longer tolerate
or endure this type of infringement on our human rights and that we will denounce their actions publicly.
