Unifor is offering new bandanas based on the American civil rights activist, writer and poet James Baldwin’s famous quote – “Nothing can be changed until faced.”

Leading up to Unifor’s second-annual Racial Justice Day on August 1, 2021, and in recognition of Emancipation Day – which commemorates the day in 1834 when slavery was abolished across the British Empire – the union is encouraging locals to order the 27” bandana featuring Baldwin’s face and his famous words, complimented by the Unifor logo.

“Baldwin’s quote is so powerful when we talk about racism, especially in light of everything that is happening – whether it’s anti-Black racism, anti-Asian racism, Islamophobia, or anti-Indigenous racism. We can’t talk about ending racism unless it’s faced,” said Unifor Human Rights Director Christine Maclin.

The bandanas are available at the UNIFOR ONLINE STORE ONLY, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to organizations working towards racial justice.

Last year’s Racial Justice Day called for racial justice in all institutions and organizations and demanded an end for racism. These demands are still in place.

Unifor is committed to working everyday to eradicate racism.
