What is the Inclusion & Anti-Racism project?
The Inclusion project has supported youth ages 15-22 to learn about themes of identity and racial justice around Metro Vancouver. Youth participants have been learning from community educators, organizers, artists, front-line workers and activists about their work on issues related to youth representation, identity, temporary foreign workers in Canada, Japanese Canadian internment, BlackLivesMatter, Chinatown, and more.
Since Fall 2016, these youth have been leading migrant justice workshops (a workshop co-developed with members of no one is illegal) for schools and youth groups across the Lower Mainland. They have also been working on community action projects, including banner painting and solidarity for local migrant justice issues, and the creation of a short documentary film on immigrant youth experiences in Burnaby.
