About the creators:

@cmhrstoplying addressing anti-Blackness and other forms of institutional and structural racism within the Canadian Museum for Human Rights: “#cmhrstoplying was specifically born out of the frustration that came from watching the CMHR use the death of George Floyd and the current focus on black lives that came out of communities’ responses as a platform to engage in performative valuing of Blackness. We very confidently say that this was performative, given our own experiences inside the museum and those shared with us since starting the hashtag.”
@ithappensinwinnipeg is first-person accounts of anti-Blackness, discrimination, microaggressions and racialized violence experienced by Black people in Winnipeg, Canada.
