Igniting Colours of Resistance

North Shore Multicultural Society

Vancouver welcomes thousands of new immigrants every year. However, their integration into Canadian life isn't always easy. The North Shore Multicultural Society’s Igniting Colours of Resistance program is dedicated to working with youth and community groups on anti-racism education and integration.

“It’s important to talk to people about racism and discrimination because they need to be aware of it, they need to know what’s going on, and they need to know that they can do something about it,” says Lili Motaghedi, program facilitator.

Vancouver Foundation supported these efforts by providing funding for the Youth Diversity Network project in 2005 and the Youth Friendly North Shore project in 2006.  The grants provide leadership for diversity issues and anti-discrimination initiatives.
