BC's Human Rights Commissioner Kasari Govender is hosting an online town hall for B.C.'s rural and remote regions.
It runs for two hours in Thurs., Aug. 6, 2:30 p.m. start and is described as an opportunity to hear from people in these regions about the pressing human rights issues impacting their lives and to share information about our rights and responsibilities under law and our human rights system.
"People in our northern and remote communities face unique human rights challenges," Govender said.
"I look forward to connecting directly with people from the area about the issues they are facing. We'll be sharing information with those who can attend about their rights and responsibilities, as well as how they can seek support and justice when they feel that they have been discriminated against."
"As BC's Office of the Human Rights Commissioner is newly re-established, my office has identified five key priorities for our work and I want to hear whether these priorities resonate with what rural and remote British Columbians are experiencing in their day to day lives," she continued.
This session, which is being held on the Zoom platform, is open to the public. Anyone interested in attending can RSVP on at Bchumanrights.ca/events/meet-bcs-human-rights-commissioner/.
