Some recent work in helping educators move into anti-racist thinking and acting in K-12 education in BC, especially with regards to Indigenous-specific racism in Canada, has me thinking about the progressions we move through (linear and cyclical) in our anti-racist understanding and doing. I have made some adaptations of the graphic borrowed and shared in my previous post. Below is a draft framework for becoming anti-racist in Canada in ways that support Reconciliation. This idea was inspired by the “Becoming Anti-Racist” graphic by Andrew M. Ibrahim MD, MSc (based on previous work Dr. Kendi).
I have added ideas and extended the arrow to indicate continual learning and growth. you will note the bi-directional arrows as well – to signify that our learning is not necessary sequential and linear; it can be messy and complex.
This graphic is still in draft (as I am always reflecting and refining) but wanted to share it.
