Face à la crise sanitaire et sociale actuelle, Exeko a dû revoir ses activités pour répondre aux besoins émergents et urgents de ses partenaires communautaires, sociaux, culturels et institutionnels, dans un esprit de solidarité et de soutien. Nous avons donc notamment mis en oeuvre à court terme des haltes visant à offrir des espaces sécuritaires de répit pour les personnes en situation d'itinérance, appuyé le déploiement d'équipes de travailleuses de rue, joint notre voix à d'autres organismes pour dénoncer le profilage racial et social en contexte de pandémie et soutenu des initiatives locales offrant des réponses communautaires aux carences dans la mise en place des mesures sanitaires.

 

En parallèle de ces actions, l'organisation a jugé essentiel de mener des réflexions de fond à moyen et long terme sur les impacts de la crise sur les populations et groupes avec lesquels nous collaborons. Ainsi, un comité dédié à l'analyse des transformations sociales actuelles a été mis sur pied afin de dresser un bilan des impacts de la crise, dans l’optique d'orienter et de guider l'action de l'organisme. Ce comité s'est tout d'abord penché sur la manière dont la crise a amplifié la précarité et la marginalisation vécues par les personnes racisées, les femmes, les personnes vivant avec des limitations fonctionnelles, les personnes neuroatypiques, les autochtones en milieux urbains et ruraux, les personnes vivant dans des situations de grande pauvreté et les communautés LGBTQI+. En privilégiant une vision large sur la réalité de ces groupes, le comité a aussi porté son attention aux effets de l'appartenance simultanée à plusieurs de ces groupes, dans une perspective intersectionnelle. La pandémie révèle une relation (prédictible) entre les inégalités sociales et les impacts disproportionnés de crises sanitaires et économiques sur les personnes vulnérables. Elle confirme aussi que tous les groupes ont vécu des impacts démesurés à cause de problématiques préexistantes. Ces réflexions et analyses, menées principalement à travers une revue de presse, une revue de littérature et nos liens de communications avec les communautés concernées, nous amènent à revoir nos programmes, nos politiques et notre positionnement, afin de contribuer à une relance reposant sur des principes décoloniaux, antiracistes, intersectionnels et inclusifs.

In light of the current health and social crisis, Exeko has had to rethink its activities in order to respond to the growing and urgent needs of its community, social, cultural and institutional partners, in a spirit of solidarity and support. In particular, we have put in place, on the short term, spots where people in situations of homelessness can rest safely, have supported the deployment of teams of street workers, have been vocal alongside other organizations in denouncing social and racial profiling in the context of the pandemic and have supported local initiatives offering community responses to the various difficulties in implementing sanitary measures.

 

Alongside these actions, the organization has decided that is essential to lead a deeper, medium- and long-term reflection on the impact of the crisis on the populations and groups with which we collaborate. Thus, a committee dedicated to analyzing current social transformations has been put in place in order to document all the various impacts of the crisis, in the scope of orienting and guiding the organization’s actions. This committee first focused on how the crisis has amplified the hardships and the marginalization experienced by racialized people, women, people living with functional limitations, neurotypical people, Indigenous people living in urban and rural areas, people living in situations of serious poverty, and members of the LGBTQI+ community. By favoring a wider view of the reality of these groups, the committee has also payed attentions to the effects of simultaneous belonging to more than one of these groups, in an intersectional perspective. The pandemic has revealed a (predictable) relationship between social inequalities and the disproportional impact of health and economic crises on vulnerable people. It also confirms that all of these groups have had to deal with disproportionate impacts due to pre-existing problems. These reflections and analyses, done mostly through a press review, a literature review and one of our communication links with the communities concerned, has brought us to rethink our programs, our polices and our position, in order to contribute to a relaunch which is based on decolonial, anti-racist, intersectional and inclusive principles.
