October 30th- Update on Anti-Racism Advisory Working Group Applications
The Selection Committee comprised of Omi Ra, Ismail Mohamed, Jean Becker, Grace Ibrahima, and Lois MacDonald had two meetings on October 14th and October 26th to discuss applications for the Anti-Racism Advisory Working Group.
Selection Committee members assessed which applicants are possible candidates for the working group by referring to previously stated criteria of:
- history of community engagement;
- personal lived experience and interest;
- experience using an Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppressive (ARAO) lens in activities/projects.
The Selection Committee has narrowed down possible candidates; however, they will need to have one final meeting on Monday, November 2nd, 2020, to finalize the 11 members Anti-Racism Advisory Working Group. The Working Group is still expected to have its first meeting by the end of November 2020.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate the Working Group. The Anti-Racism Advisory Working Group's future members will play a significant role by providing Regional Council recommendations through a Regional Anti-Racism Plan.
