Welcome to Calgary Anti-Racism Education (CARED) — a space for learners and facilitators. Through this web-based resource, we hope to help you develop an accurate, critical vocabulary for recognizing, naming, and challenging racism.

How to Use CARED:

  • Begin by getting to know CARED in the About Us section. Next, see Our Philosophy & Terminology for a brief discussion on key terms and ideas expressed throughout this resource.

  • Proceed to The Basics: Level 1 where you will learn about foundational concepts such as anti-racism, race, racialization, racism and whiteness.

  • Next, explore The Basics: Level 2 to learn about the importance of self-reflection/knowledge and your role as an anti-racism facilitator.

  • Throughout this process, please refer to our extensive, updated Glossary for key definitions and discussions.

  • It is imperative that you complete all of the above sections before proceeding to Learning Actions. Once you have done so, we invite you to explore our Learning Actions which can be used to facilitate sessions on anti-racism.

  • Finally, familiarize yourself with your Human Rights according to international, national and provincial legislation. See Alberta Civil Liberties for additional downloadable resources and a more in-depth discussion on Law.
