CASWE-ACFTS Antiracism Position
June, 2019. CASWE-ACFTS stands against racism. The acts of racial profiling of Black and Indigenous bodies on the UBC campus during the 2019 Congress were disturbing. We acknowledge the painful impact of these incidents on those who were directly targeted and on Black and Indigenous communities. The CASWE-ACFTS BOD on behalf of its members explicitly condemns all forms of white supremacy and neo-fascism and is committed to challenging anti-Black racism. CASWE-ACFTS endorses all of the demands of the Black Canadian Studies Association.
