Beasley Neighbourhood Association Response to Acts of Racism in John St. N Apartments



Thursday March 27, 2014

To the attention of Greenwin Inc.:

CC: Mayor Bob Brattina, Ward 2 Councillor Jason Farr, Evelyn Myrie (Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion), Sayed M. Tora (Imam, Hamilton Downtown Mosque), Renee Wetselaar (Social Planning & Research Council), George Gallant (Crime Manager, Hamilton Police Service) and concerned Beasley residents

We are writing this letter on behalf of the Beasley Neighbourhood Association. This letter is a response to the acts of racism that have recently been exposed at 181 John St. North, whose residents are a part of the Beasley neighbourhood. We are dismayed that targeted racist graffiti was recently found and that this problem has persisted without resolution.

(CBC Hamilton article March 26, 2014)

We urge the building owners and partners from the City and community organizations to respond to this dire issue that affects the quality of life in our neighbourhood. It is essential that subsequent conversations and efforts directly involve and empower our neighbours of colour and/or who are newcomers. Racialized residents who want to be involved must be enabled to take a lead in the discussions and planning that happen in response to this issue. The changes that need to happen will not take place without their involvement every step of the way.

The Beasley Neighbourhood Association’s vision is to improve the quality of life for people who live, work and play in the Beasley neighbourhood. Inclusion is at the forefront of our values and we do all we can to promote and create it in this community. One of our primary goals is to increase the neighbourhood sense of health, safety and security.  We are thus moved to support the residents of this building and others in the neighbourhood who have been the targets of hate crimes and whose voices have been silenced or neglected.

The Beasley Neighbourhood Association believes that everyone in our community is valuable. We urge our elected officials, our government services, our community service agencies, and the owners of 181 John St. North to provide the required resources and support to the residents in resolving this issue.

Sincerely,

Jeanette Eby and Matt Thompson

Co-Presidents, Beasley Neighbourhood Association
