Participants who shared their stories to help wash away racism are invited to a wrap-up party in Williams Lake.
The Canadian Mental Health Association Multiculturalism program is hosting a Dirty Laundry Campaign Wrap-Up Party.
New Coordinator Meera Shah who moved to the Lake City from the Sunshine Coast, says she believes the program which kicked off in February has been successful.
“I think we really raised the profile of the issue. It’s a visibility campaign on many levels and it’s also about safety so what happens is when people see those posters up and they see people’s faces and stories it’s really what increases a sense of connection and providing some safety.”
Shah says being new to the community, that’s it one of the first things that she noticed and that it made her feel better as a person of color coming in to see that there’s a caring community out there.
June 28th’s Dirty Laundry Campaign Wrap-up Party starts at 4:30 at the Cariboo Arts Centre.
