CUPE BC Racialized Workers Committee partners with provincial government to address systemic racism

BURNABY—CUPE BC’s Racialized Workers Committee is partnering with the B.C. provincial government to learn more about race-based data collection and is inviting members of the BIPOC community in B.C. to participate in an upcoming virtual townhall.

Are you from the BIPOC Community in British Columbia?

Do you have feedback for the B.C. government about race-based data collection?

Help the government learn why race-based data collection is important!

In partnership with the provincial government, the CUPE BC Racialized Workers Committee would like to invite you to participate in a virtual town hall discussion.

Systemic racism exists everywhere, including in government policies and programs. This is why the government needs better information to ensure that BIPOC have equitable access to services. We invite you to join a virtual town hall discussion about legislation changes to improve racial equity.

The provincial government needs your help as a racialized person to share how you prefer to identify, your previous experience(s) with government agencies and collection of data and how you think race-based data can be used to improve racial equity.

Participants must be residents of B.C. We welcome all BIPOC workers and their families.

Please join your preferred townhall session using one of the following links. To inform the sessions we will be using the questions contained in this survey. If you prefer to answer the survey on your own without joining a session, please feel free to do so!

Please note that we will be offering honoraria to those who participate in zoom sessions. Those who complete the survey on their own can enter a draw for a gift certificate.

The survey will be open until January 31st, 2022.
