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 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.

Regional Council Aboriginal Equity Coordinator Jenny Macleod
Regional Council Racially Visible Equity Coordinator Stephen Torng
Regional Council Members with Disabilities Equity Coordinator Shane Polak
Regional Council Pride (GLBT) Equity Coordinator Nia Gillies
