The African Arts & Cultural Society would like to invite member of African descent communities to a focus session. We would like to seek your input in the BC response to the Canadian International Decade of People of African Descent.
This strategy will enable us to better understand and tailor the Canadian International Decade for People of African Descent rapport to our needs here in British Columbia.
Focus groups is part of the Regional Black Canadians Forum and will be followed by a plenary the second day.
SPACE IS LIMITED TO 6 people per group. Please choose only one topic.
The Decade is significant as it promotes respect, protection, and fulfilment of human rights of people of African Descent. I strongly believe that this event is in line with the objectives of celebrating Black History Month.
The main objectives of the International Decade are as follows:
Promote respect, protection and fulfilment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by people of African Descent, as recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;
Promote a greater knowledge of and respect for the diverse heritage, culture and contribution of people of African descent to the development of societies;
Adopt and strengthen national, regional and international legal frameworks according to the Durban Declaration and Programme of Action and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination and to ensure their full and effective implementation.
