Human Rights

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 Aboriginal, PWD, GLBT, and Racially Visible caucus 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.

We are devastated by the horrendous attack that took place in Orlando over the weekend, targeting primarily queer and trans people of colour who were celebrating Pride. PSAC stands in solidarity with GLBT communities and pledges to honour the memories of 49 people who were killed by continuing  to stand up against homophobia, transphobia, racism and Islamophobia. PSAC is committed to advancing the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Canada.
