The Resilience BC Anti-Racism Network operates in more than 50 communities across the province. We see a future free from racism and hate. Resilience BC Anti-Racism Network is bringing communities together to do the hard work and make this vision a reality. The Resilience BC Hub, managed by the Victoria Immigrant and Refugee Centre Society, provides support and coordination services to the network.
We recognize the impact of systemic racism and the damage it inflicts everyday. We educate to understand each other, our histories, and contributions to society. We work to break down systems that perpetuate prejudice, discrimination, inequity, and exclusion.
We recognize that each person in our community has a role to play in eliminating racism and hate; from the person in a position of power, to the bystander who witnesses an incident of hate. Everyone is responsible and everyone must be accountable. The Resilience BC Anti-Racism Network exists for you. You are not alone in this fight.
