A permanent rainbow crosswalk has been installed at the Chief Louis Center on Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc.

In a statement, Kukpi7 Rosanne Casimir said the crosswalk at the intersection of Powwow Trail and Chief Eli LaRue Way will be a way to celebrate, support and raise awareness for the 2SLGBTQQIA++ community in the community and beyond.

“We are an open, responsive community that respects everyone’s rights and individuality,” she said. “Everyone matters and deserves to be treated with dignity. Our members and anyone who visits our community will know that we are inclusive and welcoming, which are our values ​​as Secwépemc.

The First Nation’s Business and Economic Development Department partnered with Forward Law, Sureus-Murphy and Urban Systems to make this crosswalk a reality.

“[We are] honored to be able to support the organization of this initiative and are grateful to our stakeholder partners who have supported the crosswalk and reinvested in the community,” said Devin Gambler, Director of Business and Economic Development for Tk’emlúps.

Casimir says signs will be added to the crosswalk this month to highlight Tkemlups’ commitment to promoting, educating and raising awareness for the benefit of the 2SLGBTQQIA++ community.
