A new exhibit at Halton police headquarters reiterates the force’s commitment to fighting hate, racism and discrimination in Burlington, Oakville, Halton Hills and Milton.
The Power of One exhibit features such notable figures as Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Anne Frank, Helen Keller, Mother Teresa and Malala Yousafzai, among others, who have each contributed to making the world a better place.
The display is open to the public in the lobby of the police headquarters, 2485 North Service Road West in Oakville.
The Power of One is being brought to Halton by the Abraham Global Peace Initiative (AGPI), a global organization that stands against hate, racism and discrimination.
President and CEO of the AGPI, Avi Benlolo will be in attendance at the launch of this exhibit along with Halton police Chief Stephen Tanner, one of the founding board members of this new global organization.
“I’m proud to host an exhibit such as this in the lobby of our headquarters,” said Tanner.
“Last week, our service launched the #NoHateInHalton campaign and this is a fantastic opportunity to amplify that message. Hate, discrimination and racism have no place in our community. We must all do whatever we can to defeat hate, racism and discrimination at every turn, and AGPI has come to be to do just that.
“The residents of Halton have a tremendous opportunity to come by our headquarters and experience this thought-provoking display. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Avi for a number of years and am so grateful he was able to bring this important message to Halton.”insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
