The PSAC BC Region has three Human Rights Committees who meet regularly to in person and via conference call to discuss issues and plan events relating to PSAC's Indigenous, PWD, GLBTQ2+, and Racially Visible members.

The BC Region also has four Regional Council members who represent equity-seeking groups. They are responsible for PSAC members within their constituencies and speak for them at the Council, they seek to promote the activism of PSAC members within these constituencies, and they ensure and promote representation for their constituencies throughout our Union.

Almost 50 PSAC members from across the province gathered in Vancouver on Saturday at the 2020 Regional Conference for Racially Visible Members, which was held under the theme "Building our Power for Change: Equity for All”. It was a busy weekend: over two days the participants developed strategies to build partnerships, coalitions, and networks for advocacy; discussed ways to broaden the base of union activists from their communities; identified political priorities for PSAC racialized members; and contributed to the development of a PSAC policy to address systemic racism.
