Richmond Community Protocol

In June 2022, the Richmond Poverty Reduction Coalition unanimously agreed to adopt the Richmond Community Protocol: Responding to Racism and Hate, developed by Richmond Resilience BC. This protocol acts as a mechanism for the quick assessment and responsive action towards incidents of hate crimes and/or hate motivated incidents. It is also designed to help organizations, community members and all relevant stakeholders react promptly and effectively whenever critical incidents of racism, hate crime or related incidents occur.

The Richmond Community protocol, which is a living document and is updated regularly,  is designed to guide both how stakeholders work with each other to coordinate organizational approaches to dealing with racism and hate crime, and also, how individual organizations and community members support victims of racism and hate crime in day-to-day situations.
