What We Do
BC Community Alliance (BCCA) is dedicated to addressing the structural inequities created by racism, especially anti-Black racism, within education settings in British Columbia. We advocate for education reform to include:
BCCA advocates for education reform by:
- conducting research to better understand the current challenges students and educators face while creating more inclusive educational environments
- networking with individuals and organizations committed to the actualization of just and inclusive education
- petitioning to representatives to demand action to address anti-black racism in schools
BCCA is working with a team of educators, administrators, and academics to develop curriculum and training materials that can be used to create a more inclusive educational setting within our schools throughout the province.
With anti-racism training for all teachers and staff to comprehensive Canadian Black History curriculum for K-12, BCCA is working to creating resources to combat racism in schools.
BCCA is creating opportunities and providing resources to empower young people to speak up against anti-Black racism.
We are working with schools and high school students to develop programs such as teacher-student advisory boards and a regional network of Black student unions.
BCCA works with and supports youth-driven community groups with resources and connections to empower them continue carrying out their work.
