An Inclusive & Diverse Surrey
A Collaborative Approach to Combatting Discrimination
Surrey OARH invites local community partners to understand challenges of discrimination in their surroundings, empower communities to develop a response, and join the network to support inclusion.
About the Forum
To establish a preventative initiative towards the rise of discrimination and racism in the community, OARH has developed the following target goals:
- Discover best practices and integrate them into OARH’s resource bank
- Empower communities and participants to implement protocol
- Provide education about the current discourse on discrimination
- Increase OARH’s community network to support inclusion
- Increase OARH’s capacity to foster best practices & response mechanisms to discrimination
Organizing Against Racism and Hate (OARH) was established in 2001 to support a coordinated community approach to counter racism and hate activity in BC. The network is comprised of leaders in anti-racism and multiculturalism work, province-wide.
- Communities have an increased knowledge and understanding of racism & hate
- Communities are mobilized to implement racism & hate response protocols
- Networks provide leadership by engaging community members in dialogues
- Community partners develop collaborative best practices for inclusion
- Community partners welcome public perception, voice, and opinion to anti-race discourse
