On June 19, 2020, Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens and Windsor Police Service Chief Pam Mizuno participated in a virtual roundtable discussion with local Black and African leaders in our community. On the theme of ‘talking with people who make you see the world differently’, the open and honest discussion that followed provided an opportunity for leaders to highlight efforts, causes and communities they champion; explain and discuss local barriers to justice and equality; and identify opportunities Windsor has to become the most inclusive and respectful city possible.
During the conversation, Mayor Dilkens said: “Let’s talk about where we have room, as a community, to evolve and grow and work to ensure we are all safe, represented, seen and heard, included and valued. Black Lives Matter. We’re here to talk with people who can make us see the world differently. That feels like the right place to start.”
