What is anti-racism?
"Anti-racism is the active process of identifying and eliminating racism by changing systems, organizational structures, policies and practices and attitudes, so that power is redistributed and shared equitably." (Alberta Civil Liberties Research Centre)
"Anti-Racism is strategies, theories, actions, and practices that challenge and counter racism, inequalities, prejudices, and discrimination based on race." (Simmons University Library Anti-Racism LibGuide)
"The term “antiracist” refers to people who are actively seeking not only to raise their consciousness about race and racism, but also to take action when they see racial power inequities in everyday life." (The Racial Healing Handbook Being Antiracist handout)
