Nominate BC’s champions of multiculturalism, anti-racism

The province is seeking nominations to honour individuals and organizations that are strengthening multiculturalism and taking a stand against racism and discrimination throughout
BC.
British Columbians can now submit nominations for the Multiculturalism and Anti-Racism Awards for individuals, organizations, and youth whose work has enhanced inclusion and cultural diversity and reduced racism and discrimination in their
communities.
The call for nominations closes at 5pm, Feb. 22, 2021. There are three categories, with five awards in total:
• Intercultural Trust
Awards (two awards):
Provided to an outstanding organization or individual for their work in building intercultural trust and understanding and/or reducing racism and hate between communities.
• Breaking Barriers
Award (two awards):
Provided to an outstanding organization or individual for their work in tackling systemic or institutional racism and reducing barriers for marginalized communities.
• Emerging Leader Award
(one award):
Provided to an outstanding youth/young adult, aged 15 to 30, for their work in building intercultural trust, tackling racism or reducing barriers for marginalized communities.
All nominees will receive a certificate of recognition. Award winners will receive plaques. The youth award recipient will receive $5,000 to donate to a not-for-profit organization of their choice to further promote multiculturalism and anti-
racism.
Nominations will be reviewed by an independent panel of judges made up of members of the provincial Multicultural Advisory Council and a former award recipient.
BC’s Multiculturalism and Anti-Racism Awards ceremony will take place virtually in late March to coincide with the annual International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
