The members of Inclusion invite Campbell Riverites to join the Walk Away from Racism March 5.

“Inclusion is a perfect fit for this event and we are very pleased to lend our talents to worthwhile events in our community,” explains John Hollywood, spokesperson for the band. “We are a group of seven Campbell River, music-lovers spending our time, efforts and talents to raise awareness that people are more alike than different. Our group’s most unique feature is its diversity. Four of our members have developmental disabilities, but our variety moves beyond this aspect to include age, ethnicity, race.

“We love to create opportunities for community members of all ages to see, first-hand, the ability levels and performance competency that can be achieved by anyone with a desire and a goal. We wish to spread the message that while some people achieve goals more easily than others, most worthwhile goals can be reached with time, effort and perhaps someone who believes in you. Everyone has gifts to contribute.”

Inclusion invites you to come and see them, as well as other local performers, on Saturday, March 5, at the Walk Away from Racism at the Community Centre starting at10:30 a.m. For information regarding the Walk, contact Multicultural Services Association at 250 830-0171 or info@crmisa.ca and check out Inclusion’s music at www.musicforeveryone.ca for more about this amazing local band.
