AthletesCAN Stands with Black and Indigenous Communities

Ottawa (June 5) - The recent incidents of discrimination and violence perpetrated against Black and Indigenous individuals and communities are atrocious.

We are outraged and sickened by these events and stand in support of our fellow BIPOC athletes and human beings. While we will never fully understand their pain, we bear witness to it.
