#MarchOutRacism

The Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan (MCoS) is offering an opportunity for high school students to participate in Arrêt/Stop racism (anti-racism) youth leadership workshops. Students will engage with peers from throughout the province as they participate in activities to explore identity, intercultural relationships, power, privilege, racism and discrimination. They will learn to facilitate these activities for use in the local school and community. Great prep for the International Day for the Elimination of Racism on March 21. Lunch and facilitation guide included.

New activities for 2018:

  • Experiential learning on Indigenous cultures, Canadian colonial history and legacies, including residential schools. Participants will learn about TRC Calls to Action.
  • Three webinars through the Ministry of Education to provide:
    • Orientation session for teachers that will prepare them for the workshop and allow them to do pre-teaching with students, so they can observe their schools and identify issues of racism, discrimination, and oppression. (end of January)
    • Support for teachers and students to work on project development. (mid-March)
    • Opportunity for schools to share their activities, successes, and challenges. (April or May)
