ANTI-OPPRESSION EDUCATORS COLLECTIVE (AOEC)
BC BIPOC EDUCATORS' CONFERENCE
In October 2019 the Anti-Oppression Educators Collective (AOEC) hosted the inaugural BC BIPOC Educators Conference: Unlearning the Colonial. The event took place at Byrne Creek Community School located on the unceded and traditional territories of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish Coast Salish Nations. The focus of the conference was to centre the voices, experiences & needs of Indigenous, Black and People of Colour in public education.
AOEC provides educators with critical professional development provided through the annual October provincial PSA day events and digital publications.
