  • Black Shirt Day –  In keeping with the District’s commitment last Spring to take a more active role in developing anti-racism policies and opportunities, next week the District will be taking up the call of a local group – the Anti-Racism Coalition (ARC) Vancouver – to participate in a “Black Shirt Day.” Much like Pink or Orange Shirt Day, Black Shirt Day provides us with an opportunity to raise the profile of the issue while we show our commitment to doing more to be part of the solution to the systemic racism we know exists all around us, including in our schools and in our community. The District team will be sharing a short collection of anti-racism resources on their website (https://newwestschools.ca), and we welcome any staff, students and community members to join us in wearing their black shirts on Friday January 15th, Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday, to show support for the anti-racism work we all need to do together.
