The Anti-Racist Community of Practice (ARCOP)

The ARCOP was born out of SOVI’s Community Space Series. It is a community group, comprised of a dedicated group of folks from across Vancouver Island committed to making change and doing the hard work, over the long term. Members of the group share resources, best practices, and brainstorm ideas to make organizations more equitable, anti-oppressive and decolonized. The ARCOP is always welcome to new members. Email sovi@bccic.ca for more information.
