BC BIPOC CONFERENCE 2019
KEYNOTE SPEECH


At our October 2019 PSA conference titled "BC BIPOC Educators conference: Unlearning the Colonial" over 200 BCTF members and community activist came together to engage in deep learning about racial oppression. Dr. Shauneen Pete led us through a critical understanding of settler colonial relationships, and what we (settlers) need to do in order to decolonize. Our conference proved to be dynamic, vibrant and deepy engaging. The work done at the conference is only a beginning to the journey we now are on, to dismantle systemic oppression in all its forms. We invite you to take some time to have listen/watch of the keynote address. If you have any further questions or comments please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via the comments section on our website. We look forward to our continued work together!
