Anti-Racism resources

by Cathryne Lillian Milburn (City of Ottawa), 26 Jun 2020

This is a collection of resources you can access if you have a lived experience of racism, if you want to learn about racism, and if you want to learn and contribute to ways of dismantling systemic and day-to-day racism. There are many resources available, and any one of them is a good start.

The resources are organized in the following sections:

  • Readings and resources
  • For children and youth
  • Being an ally
  • Mental health supports
  • City of Ottawa
  • Other levels of government
  • Organizations

This list is intended as a living resource that we can build over time for the benefit of all. Please send any feedback and suggestions to antiracism@ottawa.ca. We look forward to hearing from you.
