Our children are living through unprecedented times and are asking questions like “If I go back to school will I die from coronavirus?”. The fall-out from the COVID-19 pandemic will have long-term psychological costs and our children are among the most vulnerable. And that’s not all. Our children are impacted by anti-black racism and are asking questions like “Why am I treated differently just because of my skin colour?”. The trauma that our children experience is real and must be addressed.
Canadian families need us more than they ever have before.
