iciHaiti - Michaëlle Jean : International Decade of People of African Descent
The Haitian-Canadian Michaëlle Jean, participates until November 14 at the Nairobi Summit (Kenya). This high-level summit is devoted in particular to the International Decade of People of African Descent (2015-2024), with the objectives of full recognition, more justice and equity for the black communities who are among the most discriminated and marginalized.

In her speech, Jean emphasized, "The International Decade for People of African Descent must result in the implementation of concrete, coordinated and multisectoral action plans to end the chronic and systemic discrimination that black communities everywhere are particularly afflicted. Racism, a generator of exclusion, hatred and violence, a vestige of colonial times when millions of men, women and children captured in Africa were deported to the Americas and Europe to be enslaved, remains today a devastating scourge whose social consequences are immeasurable, including in terms of sustainable economic development which must above all be humane and inclusive."

In addition, remember that the 3rd Pan-Canadian Summit of Black Communities, sponsored by the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from March 20 to 22, 2020 "[...] The opportunity to say and show with all our voices and our forces gathered that the elimination of racial discrimination is a shared responsibility, that we must assume collectively everywhere, for a more just and inclusive world. No one should be left behind, it is an essential condition or even a prerequisite for the realization of the 2030 Agenda and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals," said the former Governor of Canada Michaëlle Jean.
