Posted: Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 11:08am

Harbour Publishing would like to extend its approval and support of the anti-racism statement released by the Association of Canadian Publishers on June 5, 2020 and adopted by the Association of Book Publishers of BC. The declaration reads in part, “we stand in solidarity with those who have taken to the streets in protest against the ongoing, brutal, and systemic anti-Black racism that remains foundational in our culture… As publishers we hold the privilege of editorial choice, making decisions about what voices and what histories, stories, recipes, or poems are published, found in bookstores, reviewed, promoted, and brought to readers.” See complete statement: https://publishers.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/200605-AntiBlack-Racism_Statement.pdf
