CARED (Calgary Anti-Racism Education)

This interactive website supports secondary and post-secondary educators as they begin or continue to learn about racism and its impact in their lives, classrooms and schools.  Includes information to support Facilitator/ Educator personal learning and for classroom discussions.

The CARED Collective, (Calgary Anti-Racism Education) established in January 2009, consists of six women from the anti-racism community in Calgary. Each member brought her own knowledge of racism and anti-racism and a commitment to anti-racism activism. The committee met regularly, with small working group meetings held more frequently with members assuming a variety of roles. Whether we acted as advisors, creators, editors, visionaries or providers of food and support, we all contributed to the creation of this online anti-racism resource.  We owe special thanks to others who were very much involved in the process, especially Linda Kongnetiman and the University of Calgary Native Centre, as well as to those who contributed their expertise to this resource.
