Thank you for your passion on human rights. You have shared your stories, ideas, and experiences with human rights violations and discrimination at work, at school and other social spaces. Some feedback was heartbreaking, but ultimately provides the fuel to charge onward.
There are only four days left in the public engagement to re-establish the B.C. Human Rights Commission.
Since its launch, this website has received thousands of visits and hundreds of individual responses. By the time the engagement closes, I will have held over 100 face-to-face meetings with stakeholders, organizations, experts and advocates. You still have until November 17 at 4 p.m. to add your voice to the discussion and I encourage you all to do so.
While we must keep the conversation going beyond the engagement, I am keen to present my recommendations to the Attorney General in December so we can move forward on re-establishing the B.C. Human Rights Commission.
If you’ve been considering participating and haven’t done so yet, I would love to hear from you. Whether it is a personal story or a systemic issue that you think a new commission could address, send us your comments, ideas and stories, and be part of this change.
