PRESIDENT’S DESKMr. Kabu Asante
I will begin by indicating that the African Canadian Social Development Council is an inclusive organization that welcomes and respects everyone.
On April 7th, 2023, I received a hateful e-mail which was also copied to about one hundred and fifty (150) friends of ACSDC. In fact, we, the leader ship of ACSDC, found the whole thing despicable and had nothing to do with it.
I have decided to write on this particular subject, even after my leaders have condemned it, due to a response made by one person, the Executive Director (ED) of one of our leading agencies here in Ontario. This person quickly pointed accusation fingers at the African Canadian Social Development Council (ACSDC) as the perpetrator of this hateful message and further announced the intention to report ACSDC to funders.
