Anti-Racism Tips From ECRC

At ECRC, we believe in providing education to our community in order to combat anti-racism.

We’re offering four tips below:

1. Provide support to racialized communities

Educate yourself further and learn what local organizations are doing to fight racism. Donate or volunteer to local racialized businesses and organizations. Encourage the community at large to contribute to their success.

2. Educate yourself and be actively aware

You don't have to rush to form an opinion. Take the time to learn about the issues in society, your community and the world.

There are several resources online including educational seminars about combating racism, identifying white privilege, and resources to educate yourself on how to be an anti-racist.

3. Align yourself closely with community

Racism still prevails in today's society. This is not just one group of society's issue, this is ALL of society's issue. Take the time to get to know others in your community.

4. Civic engagement

Are you wanting to see a change in your community & have your voice heard/represented? Know your local elected officials and bring concerns about your community to them. Practice your Civic Duty and VOTE!

Want to learn more? ECRC offers training workshops on inclusivity, anti-racism, cultural competency, and much more. These workshops allow staff to constantly update their work practices, ethics, and self-awareness in order to better serve service users. ECRC staff also attend weekly debrief meetings to share information and resources with one another. Within debrief meetings staff are often confronted with any of their possible biases they present within practice and they are given different perspectives from their co-workers.
