We are a community of people who believe that a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion off the court is as important as our play on it.
We believe that listening is as important as speaking. We will not hesitate to take action, and we will do so intentionally, focused on change.
We are empowered.
We are determined to learn, to lead, and to love.
We are all human.
We are the Toronto Raptors.
TO CHAMPION A CULTURE OF EQUITY BY STANDING AGAINST ALL FORMS OF RACISM AND HATE WITH AN INTENTIONAL FOCUS ON INTERSECTIONALITIES WITHIN INDIGENOUS AND BLACK COMMUNITIES.
We wanted to highlight, SQWISH, a Toronto-based queer drop-in basketball program that provides a welcoming environment to anyone who wants to enjoy the sport of basketball. Check out their page @sqwishsqwish for more information!
