UBCO campus rules out racism

Events focusing on racial discrimination are planned for Rule Out Racism week, March 14 to 18, at UBC Okanagan.

Highlights include a film screening of One Big Hapa Family by Kelowna native Jeff Chiba Stearns, a multi-award winning animation and documentary filmmaker.

In the film, Stearns embarks on a journey of self-discovery to find out why everyone in his Japanese-Canadian family married inter-racially after his grandparents’ generation.

The film screening takes place Tuesday, March 15, 5 p.m. in the University Centre UNC Theatre.

It is free and open to the public.

At the Eat Your Words event on Wednesday (2 to 3 p.m. in the campus courtyard), students will decorate cookies with hurtful words or words they would like to exclude from their everyday language.
