Anti-hate and anti-racism community supports—including those offered by Richmond Multicultural Community Services—are getting a boost from the province.
“There is no place for racism and hate in British Columbia. To fight racism and hate crimes, we must work together in a co-ordinated way in communities in every corner of the province,” said Anne Kang, the provincial minister responsible for multiculturalism. “These community organizations will lead action at a local and regional level to respond to and prevent racist and hate activity.”
The Resilience BC program is a provincewide anti-racism network delivered through a hub-and-spokes model. In May, the province selected the Victoria Immigrant and Refugee Centre Society to serve as a provincial hub to connect communities with information, training and resources throughout the province. The spokes are community-based branches that identify local priorities and move projects forward to address systemic and institutionalized racism at a local level.
Under the Resilience BC program, 34 organizations were selected to provide services in 40 communities throughout the province following a competitive procurement process. Thirteen organizations in the Lower Mainland are receiving a total of $105,000 as community and regional service providers for Resilience BC.
