profile

The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF), represents public school teachers in the province of British Columbia, Canada. BCTF anti racism action group provides support with regards to issues of racism. The goal of BCTF anti racism group is to “address and eliminate racism from schools and communities”. In recognition of 45th anniversary of International Day to Eliminate Racial Discrimination BCTF released a video on March 22 2011. The video highlights racism from historic Canada to present times. The video also portrays progressive changes that have occurred so far and urges individuals to “be an active witness” and advocate for anti racism.
The message? There has been awareness brought towards racism and efforts are taken to eliminate it within our communities. Racism is still present in our society and it is up to every individual to actively participate and SPEAK UP and “be an active witness “against racialized discrimination.
Information on The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation and its initiatives against racism can be found on website and on youtube.
