About Kingston Institute for Multi-Racial Inclusion (KIMRI):
[misc. note: the above field confines to only one selection when in fact more than one relates to KIMRI's purpose/mission]
To contribute to the advancement of EDII (equity, diversity, Indigenization, inclusion) in Kingston as relates to race, ethnicity, religion and cultural heritage.
To collaborate with other similar initiatives and support them as much as possible.
To provide opportunities for all individuals, organizations and the total community to learn about and participate in making Kingston a more inclusive society as relates to race, religious and ethnic background.
To foster the motivation of all members of the community to pull together in the achievement of EDII; all members including the white majority of all generations, BIPOC (black, Indigenous, people of colour), all religious groups, and any newer Canadians who have suffered from systemic racism /microaggressions or who feel unwelcomed.
To contribute to the simplification of EDII by the provision of information intelligible to the average community member; free from the necessity of having to try and comprehend the voluminous theories, semantics and advocacies of EDII, and free from having to distinguish, prioritize and determine affordability of the myriad of EDII training being marketed these days.
