It’s a phrase minorities fear they’ll hear. And sometimes they do.
That’s why the City of Toronto and Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) launched their “Toronto for all”campaign Tuesday, targeting racism and Islamophobia.
Posters that show Muslims standing up against the idea that they don’t belong in Toronto have been popping up around the city.
“Muslims are part of Toronto,” the ads read.
Debbie Douglas, executive director of OCASI, says the campaign was timed to kick off just before World Refugee Day on June 20.
“It is important that Torontonians from all walks of life take responsibility for not only welcoming refugees but also examining assumptions and stereotypes they may hold about Muslims,” Douglas said in a news release Wednesday.
