#Hatefreeyeg Campaign Launched

October 9, 2018

We are really pleased to help launch a project we have been a part of with some amazing people. #HateFreeYeg is an initiative to develop spaces free of hatred in Edmonton, if you administer a space in Edmonton, or know anyone who does, please direct them to this.

It’s a small, but crucial part of denying hate groups, fascists, neo-nazis, and racists a space to occupy and own.We are really pleased to help launch a project we have been a part of with some amazing people. #HateFreeYeg is an initiative to develop spaces free of hatred in Edmonton, and we’d love it if you gave our page Hate Free Yeg a like, and signed on.

If you administer a space in Edmonton, or know anyone who does, please direct them to this. It’s a small, but crucial part of denying hate groups, fascists, neo-nazis, and racists a space to occupy and own. We are looking for spaces and business to take the pledge to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for all!

The pledge is simple.

If you administer a space or run a business in Edmonton, we’re asking you to commit to putting a #HateFreeYeg sticker on your door or window the same way you’d put up a Pride Flag.

  • You deny hate groups, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and any other group that would seek to cause harm to others on the basis of race, creed, gender, sexual orientation or religion.
  • Your space maintains a no-service policy for people and groups of people who engage in hate and discrimination.

Most importantly, we ask that you adopt a zero tolerance policy towards:

  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Transphobia
  • Ageism
  • Ableism
  • Body shaming

Everyone deserves to live their life without the threat of hatred and discrimination. We believe people should feel safe in their communities, just as you believe people should feel safe and welcome at your shop or office. Together we can show the world that hate and intolerance has no home in Edmonton and is not wanted here!
