This Friday (Jan. 15), Surrey Schools is showing its support for the inaugural Black Shirt Day, an effort by the Anti-Racism Coalition of Vancouver to encourage education and discussion around the history of racism and civil rights in Canada.
Our district is committed to anti-racism initiatives, and schools across our district will utilize this opportunity to recognize injustices and promote racial inclusivity.
These conversations will continue through initiatives including Black History Month, National Indigenous History Month, Orange Shirt Day, Pink Shirt Day and No-Name Calling Week, all of which recognize issues of discrimination facing our diverse communities.
Other anti-racism initiatives that will keep these conversations going include:
Under Policy #10900 and Regulation #10900.1, the Surrey Board of Education advocates for human rights and prohibits discrimination, and additionally endorses curricular goals and learning objectives toward the elimination of racism and other forms of discrimination. The board supports and endorses the values and objectives contained in the Canadian Multiculturalism Act, the B.C. Multiculturalism Act, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the B.C. Human Rights Code.
Surrey Schools supports the anti-racism, anti-discrimination message of Black Shirt Day as another opportunity to promote inclusivity, positivity and acceptance in our schools and communities.
