The event is being organized by a wide coalition of cultural, human rights, 
and other organizations who wish to promote the diviversity of 
peoples who make up the Canadian mosaic.    The event hopes to

gender, sexual orientation, class, ability and other forms of 
difference. It is a direct and open response to hate and hate groups.
