Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Embrace BC has created two new resources to address racism:

Unlearn Racism is a multimedia tool designed for youth, 12-16 years of age. Through exploring six myths of racism, this tool provides an opportunity to question how personal biases are formed. A discussion guide is available for parents, teachers, and facilitators.

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

Embrace BC also has other resources to help promote multiculturalism and eliminate racism.
