DEHR Committee

Diversity, Equity, Human Rights Local Committee

 
Diversity, Equity, Human Rights Local Committee
Our Local is in the beginning stages of creating a Diversity, Equity, Human Rights (DEHR) Committee.  This Local  is increasingly becoming more diverse and as teachers it is important to be aware of and address these students’ needs. A DEHR committee would help teachers access PD opportunities, resources and be a connection to the ATA Provincial DEHR committee.  We have students that are FNMI, ELL, ESL, LBGTQ, immigrants and refugees.  We need to recognize and embrace our multiculturalism as well as look at inclusion for our students.  These are some of the areas that we as a local DEHR committee may focus on. 
If you are interested in joining this committee please send an email  to any member on the Local Executive Committee.
