BC Resiliency and Deltassist
Deltassist has actively participated in anti-racism work for 3 decades. In 2018, through funding by the Ministry of Arts, Tourism and Culture, Deltassist helped to form the Delta Organizing Against Racism and Hatred Committee, one of 32 provincial committees with the focus of addressing racism and hate in a local manner and educating the community of Delta about racism and how the public can respond. The committee consists of local residents, non-profit agencies, local government, schools, and police, as well as individuals committed to the education of the public about racism in our community and the promotion of inclusion and diversity.
In 2020 , the Delta Organizing Against Racism and Hate Committee became the Delta spoke of the Resilience BC Network and has continued to provide education, training, and develop resources for the community to respond to racism through funding by the Ministry of Tourism, Art, and Culture. The committee also responds in local media to incidents of racism and hate to ensure that the public is aware of the incidents, but also to let the public know the committee exists and can help to support victims of racism.
The committee is also actively involved in addressing racism in social media and in the news. Through funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage, the committee will be providing training on Active Witnessing and also training for local social media administrators to effectively address racist/hate posts.
