Booklet: Addressing Anti-Asian Racism: A Resource for Educators
February 09, 2021
The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) and the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) collaborated to develop a resource entitled Addressing Anti-Asian Racism: A Resource for Educators [link to resource in publications section].
With a focus on using an equity and anti-oppressive framework, this resource supports members in deepening their own knowledge, re-designing curriculum, shifting classroom conditions and creating school spaces to address anti-Asian racism during COVID-19 and beyond.
Multi-faceted in its content, the resource provides learnings on historical and current manifestations of discrimination specifically and uniquely experienced by Asian communities, centres Black lives and Indigenous voices in the fight against racism and takes an intersectional approach, recognizing the diversity and complexity of identities.
