An estimated 15,000 Edmontonians showed up for the Fight for Equity/Black Lives Matter protest on June 5, including community members from the Jasper Place/Stony Plain Road area. SPANN stands in solidarity with the Black and Indigenous members of our community. We also condemn racism and systemic racism that does not allow individuals to reach their full potential in our communities. As a community newspaper, we seek to amplify the voices of the neighbourhoods we represent, and invite people from diverse and/or marginalized communities to contribute.
