Rule Out Racism is a week-long series of events organized by the Equity and Inclusion Office focused on the need for greater literacy and conversation about race and racism within the UBC community in the Okanagan and Vancouver. Held from March 16-20, 2015 with the theme “This is what anti-racism looks like,” it included a highly provocative program of presentations, discussions and engaging workshops addressing the need for greater conversation about anti-racism practices, and what can be done concretely to address racism.
Events were held concurrently on the UBC Okanagan and UBC Vancouver campuses.
A video will be available soon of the March 20 event: The Value of Freedom: Academics VS. Expression panel discussion. Check equity.ubc.ca for updates.
