Community leaders come together
Around Kamloops, this protocol was very well received. In fact, 14 organizations and community leaders came together for a very touching signing-on ceremony to show their support of the protocol and their dedication to fighting discrimination in this community. The protocol has received a lot of local media attention and continues to gain a higher profile.
Presenting the protocol to organizations and businesses has led to many requests for workshops on diversity, organizational change and responding to racism .
The youth action team has adopted the protocol and designed a youth-friendly version of the protocol. It has since promoted the protocol to other youth groups.
The incident response protocol is an ongoing project and has evolved in a number of ways. It has been updated and now includes response guidelines to deal with all forms of discrimination, not just racism.
