WHAT IS ANTI-RACISM

Anti-racism is the practice of actively identifying an opposing racism.

The goal of anti-racism is to actively change policies, behaviors, and beliefs that perpetuate racist ideas and actions.

 

No one is born a racist or anti-racist; these thoughts result from the choices we make.

Being anti-racist is devised from a conscious decision to make frequent, consistent, and equitable choices on a daily basis.

These choices require ongoing self awareness and self reflection as we move through life.

In the absence of making anti-racist choices we (un)consciously uphold aspects of white supremacy, white-dominant culture, anu unequal institutions in society. Being racist or anti-racist is not about who you are its about what you do.

requiring a radical reorientation of our consciousness."
