Anti-racism

The following are recommended resources compiled by Housing Central to support you and your organization as you engage in learning about racism, anti-racism, and ways to integrate anti-racist practices into your organization. Being anti-racist is an ongoing experience of learning, reflection, and action, in which Housing Central is engaged along with you.

This list is by no means exhaustive. It is, however, a place to start. If you have any suggestions of additional resources, please let us know at communications@bcnpha.ca.
