It’s time to shine a light on British Columbians going above and beyond to fight against discrimination and racism.
Nominations are now open for the Multiculturalism and Anti-Racism Awards. The province is calling on the community to nominate individuals and organizations that are strengthening multiculturalism and taking a stand against racism and discrimination throughout B.C.
If you know of “organizations and youth whose work has enhanced inclusion and cultural diversity, and reduced racism and discrimination in their communities,” then now is the time to highlight their efforts.
Established in 2008, the awards are hosted annually by the provincial government, with advice and support from the B.C. Multicultural Advisory Council. Over the years, almost 40 individuals and organizations have been awarded for doing their part to strengthen multiculturalism.
