Wrapping up a series of online engagements with communities across the province, BC’s human rights commissioner Kasari Govender will host a virtual townhall event with participants from Metro Vancouver this Thursday (Sept. 17) from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. via Zoom.
The two-hour session is an opportunity to hear from people in this region about the pressing human rights issues impacting their lives. The commissioner will also share information about the province’s human rights system and our rights and responsibilities under the law.
“People in Metro Vancouver are facing unique set of human rights challenges, many of which are exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Govender. “On Thursday I want to hear from residents of Metro Vancouver about their experiences. I know this region has witnessed an increase in hate and racism. I know its neighbourhoods feel the strain of economic inequality and deep poverty. And I know it is continually impacted by historical and ongoing colonialism.”
