A new tool aims to help create and advance anti-racism policies and initiatives in Surrey and beyond by charting racist incidents out on a map.
The Surrey Local Immigration Partnership is asking anyone who’s been a victim or witness to racist incidents to report it anonymously through RAMP, a Racism Mapping Project.
The tool allows for a general report, incident reporting for yourself and incident reporting for others.
“The launch of this community map is intended to address our firm conviction that in Canada, racism against Indigenous peoples, newcomers, and immigrants is a norm and needs to be proactively addressed,” the post adds.
