March 21 Activities in Saskatchewan

MCoS Coordinating  Provincial March 21 Campaign

Every year, in recognition of March 21: International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination,  MCoS executes a provincial anti-racism educational campaign.

This year’s campaign features the theme Show Racism the Door and the hashtag #MarchOutRacism. In 2018, we are encouraging participation in the campaign through a Show Racism the Door activity kit.

The best way to participate in this campaign is to download activity kit Show Racism the Door Activity Kit and share photos and videos on social media using #MarchOutRacism and challenging others to do the same.

MCoS is also hosting two public forums on racism as part of this provincial campaign. Stay tuned for dates and locations.
