March 21st Activities in Saskatchewan
MCoS Coordinating Provincial March 21st Campaign
Every year, in recognition of March 21st: 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.
