Learning Anti-Racism Toolkit

In Pacific Northwest Indigenous culture, the lesson of the hummingbird legend is that each person has gifts to give. Other meanings are health, joy, and harmonious relationship.

Interested in learning about Anti-Racism or perhaps starting a study group among friends, students or at work?

This Toolkit was created in collaboration with the Centre for Civic Religious Literacy, 2 advisory groups and 22 local reviewers across British Columbia.

We welcome everyone interested in this important issue to explore the Toolkit and consider sharing some or preferably all of the 8 sessions with a group. It’s yours to use!

We’ve chosen to encourage insight, empathy, and listening, emphasizing respect and the need to be kind and compassionate as we learn with and from each other.

The Anti-Racism Toolkit includes:

  • Sessions on anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism, Islamophobia, antisemitism and anti-Asian racism
  • Step-by-step instructions, Glossary
  • Links to online resources
  • Facilitator’s Guide
