The Red Coalition Inc. is a prominent and sought after lobbying firm situated in Montreal, Quebec, advocating for one common
goal, which is to eliminate the practice of racial profiling and systemic racism within Canada. The organization seeks to raise
clarity and awareness of the mental health issues and public health problems it is causing amongst it's citizens.
We are the only federally registered lobby group in all of Canada, fighting for the rights of Canadians against
racial profiling and 1 of only 3 lobby groups fighting against systemic racism. The "act" of practicing racial profiling against
innocent victims by Canada's police forces do not just stop at the victim, but actually touches those close to them equally.


"Racial profiling can make you feel anxious, nervous, emotional, humiliated, ashamed, embarrassed, vulnerable, inadequate, judged, angry, not-worthy, unstable and uneasy. The subconscious feeling of unworthiness combined will all of these emotions are real and are perpetrated by those in the position of authority who seek to judge you solely on the color of your skin, your religion, your ethnicity, your gender, by the vehicle you choose to drive and by the city you choose to live in."
-Joel DeBellefeuille, Founder, Red Coalition
