SOCIAL & ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

The VSTA acknowledges that we work on the unceded and traditional territory of the Musqueam, Tsleil Waututh, and Squamish peoples.

The VSTA strives to provide leadership in the advancement of social and environmental justice. 

BCTF Social Justice

The BCTF is proud of its history as a social justice union. This means that as an organization of professionals, we accept and act on our broad responsibility to be involved in the social development of the communities and the province we live in, and we do this in the interests of the children we teach.

A social justice union advocates for social change that will enhance equity, security and safety, sustainability of communities, participation of citizens in social change, and access to opportunities for personal growth and development.

The social justice initiatives of the Federation focus on antipoverty child and youth issues, women’s rights, antiracism, gender equity, LGBTQ issues, bullying, environmental justice, peace and global education, and violence prevention. In addition, the Federation has an advisory committee on Aboriginal education.
