SD57 District Student Advisory Council launches anti-racism video series

Mar 3, 2022 | 4:45 PM

PRINCE GEORGE – Instead of standing by, the group of students part of the SD57 District Student Advisory Council (DSAC) stepped up in the fight against racism in our community.

The four-part series called ‘Raising the BAR: Bystanders Against Racism’ was created following a racist incident within a Prince George high school which inspired action.

The first part of the series shares experiences from students, former students, and staff members from within the SD57 family of schools.

The second, third, and fourth episodes discuss the impact of racism, and the hope going forward to create a better community for everyone.

The films were premiered in an event held at Vanier Hall in front of local leaders including Mayor Lyn Hall and Trustee Tim Bennett who were part of a panel following the showing about the importance of “turning the dial on racism.”

Mayor Hall applauded the work of all the students who worked tirelessly to make the short films, and also those who courageously shared their experiences as part of the series.

Superintendent Cindy Heitman said the films will make their way into many classrooms in the near future, with a priority on making sure students watch the full series to better understand racism.
