Students take anti-racism to the wall

Students take anti-racism to the wall

High schools and universities join forces to create Surrey mural.

About 35 students from Surrey high schools worked alongside those from SFU, UBC and the American Educational Research Association Graduate Student Council last week in painting a 65-foot public mural as part of the Surrey: Take it to the Wall anti-racism initiative at SFU Surrey.

The students worked in teams, each painting one of five four-by-eight-foot aluminum panels.

Once complete, the mural will be installed in a location to be determined by the Surrey’s Parks, Recreation and Culture department.
