Anti Racism

The new Social Justice & Solidarity Committee consolidates the following standing committees: Anti-Poverty, Anti-Racism, Pride, Status of Women and Sustainability under one umbrella to address solidarity and social justice issues. The co-chairs for the Social Justice and Solidarity Committee are: Kavan Johal and Elaine Ong.

This committee works to support teachers and assists them in finding resources and practical ways of doing anti-racism work in their classrooms.

We are also looking at ways in which we can work collaboratively with other like-minded community organizations and other VESTA committees interested in doing social justice work.

New members are always welcome so please contact the VESTA office if you have any questions about the committee.
