Pillar Nonprofit Network's Strategic Plan binds us and emboldens us to name and resist violence against and inequities affecting Black, Indigenous, People of Colour (BIPOC) abroad and right here in our own community and to embrace radical accountability for our own role in oppressive systems. 

At Pillar, those of us who have benefited from White privilege are committing to the long process of unlearning and learning, and we are making sure to check on our team members who have suffered and continue to suffer harm from White supremacy.

We also know that, as individuals and organizations dedicated to positive change, our members have an essential role in creating a safe, just, and equitable community for all. While we continue to examine and adjust our own role in this work, we remain committed to sharing resources to help our membership and community recognize and combat racism in Canada and elsewhere while also managing the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We also join in recognizing that the pandemic is a revealer of other sociodemographic determinants of health both in Canada and abroad. If there are resources or other supports you need to join in this work, please reach out to to let us know.


The Pillar Nonprofit Network team is committed to engaging, supporting, and informing our membership and community through the multiple crises we face. Use our curated collection to find the information you need when you need it.
