The Halton Equity and Diversity Roundtable (HEDR), a new community collaborative of over 60 organizations, groups, businesses, and community members, is able to officially provide resources and training to create a more inclusive and equitable Halton community, thanks to a three-year, $225,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) made in Fall 2013.
