In the summer of 2020, with the killings of multiple Black and Indigenous people in the United States and Canada at the hands of police officers, anti-racism protests spread throughout the world, and a racial reckoning seemed to be stirring. The ripple effects of this movement have been felt in all sectors of society, and faith organizations like our own have begun to ask the question, in arguably more intentional ways than ever, “how can we do better?”
In our ongoing effort to decolonize the church, we have added a new section to the diocesan website, consisting of recommended resources to help individuals and communities seeking to become anti-racist. In this section, you will find books, websites, podcasts, videos and more to help you begin or continue your journey of truth-telling and healing from the harms of colonialism and whiteness. Visit the anti-racism resources at: www.bc.anglican.ca/resources.
If you have recommendations (particularly Canadian resources) to add to this list, please contact [email protected]
