Unlearn Racism
Designed for youth 12-16, the Unlearn Racism resource is about challenging the status quo, questioning the one-sided narrative that’s presented to us every day of our lives and putting aside the practice of discrimination that’s fuelled by historical events and past perceptions. A discussion guide is also available.



Know Hate
Developed in collaboration with the BC Hate Crimes Team and Abbotsford Community Services, the Know Hate campaign and Hate Crimes BC website provides awareness and information about  what constitutes a hate crime, reporting information and links to resources for victims.
