The far-right is trying to stack school boards. We've put together the background and tools you need to confront and prevent hate during the upcoming elections.
It is so important to be engaged in these races, as the people elected have a direct influence on the wellbeing of our country's most marginalized youth.
Groups like Halton Parents for Change, Hamilton Students for Justice, Rainbow Ottawa Student Experience, and many more, have all advocated in the school system in favour of justice, equity, and inclusion in the face of both overt hate and systemic oppression. In many cases they have won.
We believe that we can win.
Keep an eye on this space for new stories on school board races important to you, and tools for how to build an inclusive, safe school environment for all youth.
