LEARN MORE ABOUR BROMLEY LLOYD ARMSTRONG
On Tuesday April 27, 1954 the Toronto-based Negro Citizenship Association (NCA) made history when it went to Ottawa to demand changes in the discriminatory policies of the Canadian Immigration Act. Led by Donald Moore, the delegation received support from many community groups, including the Canadian Labour Congress and The Toronto and Lakeshore Labour Council - precursor of the Toronto and York Region Labour Council. In “Welcome to Canada”, long time union activist and co-founder of the NCA, Bromley Armstrong, sheds light on the circumstances around this historic moment.
Let's learn from those in our movement who spent a lifetime tackling systemic racism.
The Labour Council salutes the leaders who made a difference inside and outside the Labour Movement in Canada. Let's also remember our Historical Alliance with the Canadian Civil Rights Movement and strengthen our solidarity.
