March is Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Month!
In 1966, The United Nations declared March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in commemoration of the 1960 Sharpeville massacre in South Africa when peaceful demonstrators against apartheid were wounded and killed. In 1990, City Council proclaimed March as Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Month in the City of Saskatoon.
Join us! The Cultural Diversity & Race Relations Committee presents “Living in Harmony” awards to recognize local organizations or individuals for their efforts in promoting intercultural harmony. The winners will be announced at a public “Living in Harmony” Awards Ceremony at 10 a.m. Monday, March 21, 2016, Tommy Douglas Collegiate (130 Bowlt Crescent). More information can be found here.
