B.C. seeks anti-racism advocates for provincial committee

People from diverse backgrounds with an interest in dismantling systemic racism and advancing racial equity are encouraged to apply to be members of the Provincial Committee on Anti-Racism.

The Province is accepting expressions of interest from throughout the province to fill 11 positions on the new committee, which will advise government about the implementation of the newly passed Anti-Racism Act and on developing a whole-of-government Anti-Racism Action Plan. The committee will also be responsible, in collaboration with racialized communities, to develop a framework for public bodies to do anti-racism assessments and establish anti-racism training standards they will follow.

Requirements for consideration include being a B.C. resident, having lived experience as a racialized person and experience with anti-racism work.
