Anti-Racism Considerations for Programming/Outreach/Resource Development

Find it here.

“The Nova Scotia Youth Project has developed a digital resource to be used by service providers, organizations, and businesses who work closely with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) youth. The Anti-Racism Considerations for Programming, Outreach, and Resource Development is a compiled list of current best practices, often utilized in grassroots and community based organizations who work with historically excluded and underserved youth. The goal of this checklist is to provide a tangible and accessible entryway for service providers to platform anti-racism in their communities and workplaces.”
