Community Consultations About Antisemitism and Islamophobia

5 Apr

The York Region District School Board’s Equity and Inclusive Advisory Committee (EIAC) is seeking to consult with communities regarding Antisemitism and Islamophobia in YRDSB Schools.  EIAC is seeking “youth, families and community members to provide input” and in turn will be “providing recommendations to the board based on these consultations.”

More information about community consultations on Antisemitism in York Region Schools can be found here.  More information about community consultations on Islamophobia in York Region Schools can be found here.

We thank you for your support.
