All seven authors – Nicholas XEMŦOLTW̱ Claxton, Denise Fong, Fran Morrison, Christine O’Bonsawin, Maryka Omatsu, John Price and Sharanjit Kaur Sandhra – and the illustrator John Endo Greenaway will be present to share how they hope the illustrated resource will be used by educators and activists interested in doing anti-racist work. The discussion will be moderated by our Director, Dr. Carol Liao.

This free and open access publication examines the historical thread of racism and how it connects to the racism that is ongoing. Individuals, educators, and policymakers can use this to amplify the diversity of voices and experiences in our movement and pathway forward. Download the booklet for free here. This book will be further developed into an interactive online resource.
