As responsible citizens, we make a commitment to commemorate the victims and survivors of these atrocities so that we never lose sight of our collective responsibility to fight prejudice and all forms of discrimination, to prevent hatred from taking root in our communities. Educators are encouraged to take time in April to remember those who suffered and lost their lives in the Holodomor and other genocides, to commit to using education to protect and defend human rights and dignity everywhere, and to stand up against all exclusionary practices that are known precursors to crimes against humanity.
