"We are very fortunate to live in a city as diverse as ours," said Darren Green, President of the Hamilton Steelworkers Area Council. "We celebrate our community and the progress we've made in promoting inclusion, human rights and respect for diversity. We must also recognize there is more work to do to eliminate racial discrimination in our society."

The theme this year is Communities Coming Together.
"We have witnessed the constructive actions in response to events happening in our country and elsewhere over the last year and we want to have a conversation in an open and welcoming forum where everyone feels comfortable discussing what needs to be done going forward as a community."
