Minister to talk combatting racism in Grande Prairie

Education Minister David Eggen will be in Grande Prairie next month to hear local ideas on how to combat racism and make Alberta more inclusive. Eggen launched a province-wide survey on the issue Monday, wanting to hear thoughts on helping Albertans who experience racism.

Premier Rachel Notley tasked the minister with gathering community input on steps the government can take in July. He says he’s since met with more than 60 community groups, and will meet with more this fall.

“After meeting with a wide range of organizations, I am in awe of the knowledge, passion and commitment they have shown in addressing racism and promoting diversity and inclusion. This is our Alberta; it belongs to each and every one of us and we will work together to make lives better.”

Based on his meetings and the survey results, Eggen will put together a report with recommendations later this fall. The survey can be found online until September 22nd, and groups wanting to meet with the minister when in town can email [email protected]
