Multicultural Issues and Challenges

Every single one of us is unique....and that's a beautiful thing. But it can be a challenge to embrace and express who you are when facing issues such as stereotyping, racism, sexism, heterosexism or religious discrimination. Discrimination and stereotyping seem to be rampant in our society, despite progressive movements, diversification and efforts towards equality. Those experiencing multicultural issues may be left questioning their identity, feeling like they should hide who they are or like they should assimilate to the ‘cultural norms’ of society. Feelings of being targeted, discriminated against, or judged can be immensely damaging to mental and emotional well-being.


If you are dealing with issues related to understanding various aspects of your multicultural identity or are dealing with discrimination itself, know that our staff at Place of Peace is open and affirming to individuals of all races, ethnic groups, sexual or religious orientations, economic backgrounds, beliefs and opinions regardless of age, gender, disability status or stage of identity. We are eager to serve and help all human beings.
