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] Purpose 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.

Our Mission:

Mission To plan and execute an ongoing and omnipresent EDII education, awareness and advocacy blitz through its website, social media and print media. To provide a safe and sustainable platform for dialogue on antiracism and multiculturalism, and to facilitate processes for same which reach all members of the community. (all possible ethnic, racial, religious, age, gender groups including those deemed to be racist or bigots, those who have suffered as victims of racism or discriminatory behaviour, those who are unaware of or indifferent to racism and other forms of discriminatory behaviour, all socio-economic groups) To design and operationalize processes to match people in buddy systems whereby a) members of minority groups (particularly newcomers or those suffering racial micro-aggressions) are teamed up with caring members of the majority group who want to help, support and befriend or b) caring members of their own group who have been in Canada for a while who want to help, support and befriend. To conduct research and polls on matters that relate to Kingston’s achievement of an inclusive community free from any form of racism or discriminatory behaviour (including research on what needs to be researched) To offer webinars (free or at reasonable affordable rates) on EDII topics To offer consulting, training and coaching services on EDII topics at reasonable affordable rates
