Join us on August 28th from 2-4pm to demand justice for our community member Kayla Borden. On July 28, 202 Kayla Borden was racially profiled and arrested by 6 Halifax Regional Police Officers.
Open letter: On behalf of the members of the Jamaican Cultural Association of Nova Scotia (JCANS), we wish to express our displeasure and outrage at the unfair arrest and treatment of KAYLA BORDEN by the Halifax Regional Police. She is a valued member of our Association. This was a blatant case of Anti-Black Racism manifested so egregiously in characteristic Racial Profiling in street checks by law enforcement agencies in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM).
In the early hours of Tuesday July 28, 2020 Kayla Borden was racially profiled, pulled over, and arrested without cause by the Halifax Regional Police. Women’s Wellness Within is demanding an end to anti-Black systemic racism inflicted by law enforcement in Halifax.
