Solidarity in the Face of Injustice
Our museum has a responsibility in its community to preserve history in a way that respects all citizens of the past and the present. The protests around the world have pushed us to champion the importance of solidarity in the face of injustice. Activists have challenged everyone to look at their bias and the Boundary Museum is making a commitment to update our exhibits and spaces to better reflect and respect the histories of marginalized Canadians. The museum will strive to ensure we are a bastion of truth and a beacon of hope, always looking for ways to improve our methods and our ethics to help the cause of the underrepresented and disenfranchised.
Moving forward in our efforts to better represent the diverse history of the boundary area we would love to hear from all members of the community so that the information we display and provide can be informed by the most plural voices possible. The boundary museum provides a collaborative space for mutual learning, if you are interested in contributing to the future of the museum please consider joining the Boundary Museum Society. Together we can make the museum respectful, safe space for all visitors to explore their history.
We will be standing in solidarity on Sunday at Gyro Park from 2pm-4pm.

We implore you to join us while wearing a mask and observing social distancing. This is “a community event to focus on marginalized folks, (in this case black and indigenous peoples), systemic racism, the failing justice system, and how we make change” arranged by organizers Temeeka Guy and Rach Danczak.
