COVID-19 Statement

Courageous Conversation Community,

I hope that you, your families, friends and neighbors are all well and safe as we discover what it really means to be a global community. No one questions that COVID-19 has critically interrupted our systems—social, economic, crisis management and others. As we continue to understand and endure, we are reminded of the color, culture and consciousness of the systems and institutions upon which our treatment and recovery depend.

The way in which we greet, engage and associate with one another has been altered dramatically. Our collective effort to stay in and keep each other safe, however, do not include silence on matters critical to the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of our humanity. While the pandemic is colorblind and knows no borders, the responses are neither.

We sincerely hope that you will join the Courageous Conversation which will follow.

Government to Allocate Budget Funding to Fight White Supremacy

By Patrick Gower—May 19 2019

Finance Minister Grant Robertson will put aside money to fight white supremacy in the Budget, Newshub can reveal.

The Finance Minister’s office has confirmed “future allocations of funding” will be made in this year’s Budget for the Government’s response to the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Christchurch terror attack.

“We will be ready to respond to the outcomes of that, including through future allocations of funding,” a spokesperson for the Minister said.

The failure by New Zealand agencies to address the rise of white supremacy is so clear, it is virtually certain to be raised by the Royal Commission.

“Obviously the March 15 terror attacks changed things, and that’s why we set up the Royal Commission to look into what was being done on this issue,” the spokesperson said.

The Royal Commission started last week and is investigating the events leading up to the attack and the performance of state sector agencies in relation to those events. It will report back in December.
