June 2020 – We stand in solidarity with Black communities.
Our goal of a child care system that reflects, respects and honours Black people, Indigenous people, and people of colour cannot be achieved without dismantling the systems of privilege and power that exist within our organization and our society. We are committed to upending the status quo by centring anti-oppression, including anti-racism, in our advocacy and in our work in and with communities. We have much to learn and do.
Support for UNDRIP
The Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC (CCCABC) applauds the Government of British Columbia (BC) for being the first province in Canada and first jurisdiction in North America to introduce enabling legislation to reconcile BC laws with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
CCCABC is committed to full implementation of the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the recommendations of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
CCCABC supports Indigenous peoples in their work to restore their own authorities for their children, families and communities’ futures and ensure that their children and families have access to spiritually enriching, culturally relevant, high quality early childhood development and care services.
