Political belief is a protected ground under the British Columbia Human Rights Code. Everyone has the right to be free from discrimination based on political belief. Join us for an online workshop organized by the Community Legal Assistance Society's Human Rights Clinic (HRC), where Laura Track, Director of HRC and Education, and Sohrab Rezaei, Legal Advocate will delve into the topic of discrimination based on one's political belief, and help FACL BC members understand their rights and responsibilities under British Columbia's human rights laws. 

FACL BC recognizes that in today's diverse society, fostering an environment of inclusivity requires open dialogue and mutual understanding. This workshop aims to provide participants with the tools to recognize and address discrimination stemming from political beliefs. This workshop is designed for individuals seeking to enhance their awareness of political discrimination, how to identify it, and how to report it. 

The HRC speakers will guide attendees through thoughtful discussions, interactive activities, and practical strategies to promote respectful communication across diverse perspectives. Please note that no legal advice will be provided during the workshop. 

FACL BC thanks the Community Legal Assistance Society's HRC in making this workshop possible.
