In the wake of anti-racist protests in 2020, we called on organizations, advocates, community leaders, Indigenous and racialized Albertans from varying backgrounds to participate in a series of conversations on the reality of racism in Alberta.
Based on their initial input, we began work on anti-racism in six issue areas: healthcare, education, public safety, community support, economic participation, and democratic participation.
Participants made it loud and clear — they want substantive change, and they want it now. An overwhelming number of respondents advocated for the collection of race-based data.
In this legislative session, MLA David Shepherd will be introducing the “Alberta Equity Act” a piece of legislation that will mandate the collection of Race-Based Data. Before we vote, we want to make sure that we’ve heard from you all one more time.
Join MLA Shepherd on March 30th at 6:00 pm to review and discuss the new “Alberta Equity Act.”
