People doing anti-racism work given more resources to fight hate

More than 60 organizations have received funding to support projects designed to counter racism and promote inclusivity throughout the province.

The B.C. Multiculturalism and Anti-Racism Grants program is providing $310,000 to support community-led initiatives such as anti-racism education and awareness, cross-cultural engagement and promoting social change through the arts.

Since launching in 2015, the grant program has provided more than $2 million to nearly 450 anti-racism and multiculturalism initiatives.

“Racism is not something that any one person or group can fight alone,“ said Niki Sharma, Attorney General. “We need to all stand together as a community to stand against racial discrimination. I look forward to seeing the outcomes of the work being done by these inspiring people.”
