Multicultural and Anti-Racism Grants to be announced this Spring
Every year, the Multicultural and Anti-Racism Grants are offered to registered non-profit and other eligible organizations. Funds are available to support projects that build intercultural interaction, trust and understanding, or challenge racism, hate and systemic barriers; successful applicants will be announced in the coming weeks!
In anticipation of the upcoming announcement of the 2022/2023 cycle of recipients, of Black History Month in February, and of the upcoming International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (March 21 annually), I want to share an update on a few of the Richmond community-led anti-racism initiatives our government has supported!
Power of Discourse Consulting is a recent Richmond/Lower Mainland/Victoria recipient of this Grant and it is currently inviting teachers and school administrators based in British Columbia to participate in professional development sessions on creating safe and inclusive classrooms. Please click here to register and only choose one session (Feb 24).
Cinevolution is a grassroots, women-led, migrant-driven film and media arts organization right here in Richmond, and, our government has supported their podcast series exploring perspectives and anti-racism stories from the Asian diaspora. Today, a while after the most significant pandemic restrictions have lifted and after when these podcasts are made, its contents are still very timely and relevant -- all the more so here in Richmond.
The Richmond Public Library is a successful recipient and the Library has produced BIPOC TOK. The focus of the six part series was on building skillsets and providing access to professional BIPOC podcasters and to the equipment itself!
