IMSS Gets Anti-Racism Funding
Prince George, B.C. – The Immigrant and Multicultural Services Society (IMSS) of Prince George has received a $20,000 anti-racism grant from the provincial government.
The money will go towards developing a local anti-racism education campaign.
The funding is a province-wide initiative with 14 communities sharing in nearly $263,000 in the latest round of anti-racism funding.
Prince George-Valemount Liberal MLA Shirley Bond says the money helps foster an inclusive community.
“Racism is unacceptable and these funds will be used by IMSS to support a variety of anti-racism initiatives.”
IMSS executive director Baljit Sethi welcomed the announcement and says similar campaigns in the past have made a big difference in the community.
“IMSS and its partners have successfully launched several anti-racism initiatives that have impacted the community by raising awareness and conveying the importance of cultural diversity and ethnic inclusivity.”
