WHY ARE WE ASKING YOU TO TELL US WHAT YOU THINK?
In Feb 2015, the Race and Anti-racism Network (RAN) at UFV has launched a postcard/billboard campaign, titled Postcards from the Margin.
The postcards are designed to raise awareness and generate anecdotal information about racism, race related harassment, bullying and discrimination on campus. RAN designed post cards for dissemination (for anonymous drop off/internet collection) on campus requesting personal experiences and perspectives of UFV students/faculty/staff/management across all campuses (see postcards below).
Or, instead of writing on the postcards, you may submit your stories online by clicking on the tab "Tell Us What You Think."
RAN assures anonymity in order to provide reassurance that those who report the events do not face any ramifications for their disclosures. The goal is to raise awareness, when many people may think that such outrageous behavior is a relic of a previous age, and to validate these experiences by providing a space for them to be recorded, analyzed and understood.
Have courage, and share your stories. For any questions or concerns, please contact Satwinder.Bains@ufv.ca or Sharanjit.Sandhra@ufv.ca.
