Proposal Abstract

Racism and discrimination exist on Canadian campuses, as they do at TRU. Students are eager for educational resources and strategies to mitigate the harms that are caused by ignorance and oppression. In this session students involved with several of the Faculty of Student Development’s Peer Mentor Programs (Intercultural Ambassadors, Indigenous Mentors, and Story Telling Squad) will share how they have been working to promote various resources for students to learn and unlearn about cultural diversity, racism, and systemic oppression. From fun information to serious dialogues, these students are pushing out information on social media that offers other students resources to understand and stand against discrimination and racism. The students will describe why these resources are important, how they have been sharing them and the responses they have been getting. Participants attending this session will be able to ask questions and take away resources they can use with their own students.

Statement

This session aligns with the theme: Beyond Exclusion: Anti-racism
