What Is Anti-Racism?

Anti-racism encompasses a range of ideas and political actions which are meant to counter racial prejudice, systemic racism and the oppression of specific racial groups.

Anti-racism is usually structured around conscious efforts and deliberate actions which are intended to provide equal opportunities for all people on both an individual and a systemic level.

As a philosophy, it can be engaged in by the acknowledgment of personal privileges, confronting acts as well as systems of racial discrimination, and/or working to change personal racial biases.

The Diverse Educators’ Anti-Racism Toolkit

We are collating a growing bank of resources to support you in reflecting on the following questions:
  • How do I intentionally show up as an anti-racist?
  • How do I face the facts about racism, white privilege, and white supremacy?
  • How do I challenge racial stereotyping?
  • How do I champion equality and fight for equity?
  • How do I share any privilege I have to centre marginalised Black and brown people?
