A wide range of groups have endorsed the rally, including the Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society, Stand Up to Racism Metro Vancouver, SAFE Vancouver: Solidarity Against Fascism Everywhere, and the Coalition Against Bigotry – Pacific along with unions and other organizations.
We acknowledge that this event is being organized on the occupied, traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish nations.
