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 Racism: Recognize it. Reject it! and the hashtag #MarchOutRacism. During March 2019, we are encouraging participation in the campaign through a Racism: Recognize it. Reject it! activity kit.
The best way to participate in this campaign is to download the Racism: Recognize it. Reject it! Activity Kit and share photos and videos on social media using #MarchOutRacism and challenging others to do the same.
