BCTF Social Justice
The BCTF has a proud history as a social justice union. The BCTF as an organization of professionals, accepts and acts on the broad responsibility to be involved in the social development of our communities and our province, doing so in the interests of children we teach. The PGDTA as a local of the BCTF seeks to be involved in the social development of our communities of Prince George, Mackenzie, McBride, and Valemount.
The words Social Justice have a vague and very academic sense to them. To clarify, the BCTF and the PGDTA as 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 BCTF focus on poverty, child and youth issues, race relations, gender equity, homophobia and heterosexism, bullying, environmental issues, globalization, and violence prevention. In addition, the BCTF has an advisory committee on Aboriginal education.
