Anti-Racism Action Committee

In October 2020, an Anti-Racism Action Committee was formed to oversee the development of a community-based anti-racism strategy. Together, the Committee, Administration, and external consultants will work with Racialized communities to identify strategies to address racism within our programs and services and leverage work being done in our communities. 

Goals


The Anti-Racism Action Committee will advise Council and provide leadership on developing and implementing a community-based anti-racism strategy. The Committee will monitor emerging community opportunities and challenges related to racism; identify systemic barriers to accessing City of Calgary programs and services; and recommend opportunities to work with community partners and organizations to address structural racism.

The Anti-Racism Action Committee will be responsible for the following:

  1. Advising  and providing leadership on the development and implementation of a community-based anti-racism strategy;
  2. Identifying systemic barriers to accessing City of Calgary programs and services;
  3. Identifying intersecting oppressive systemic barriers to access information about City of Calgary programs and services; 
  4. Identifying opportunities to work with community partners and organizations, as well as The City of Calgary, on actions to address structural racism on a community-wide level;
  5. Engaging and collaborating with community stakeholders (including other Council Advisory Committees) on systemic racism and actions; 
  6. Reporting back to Council through regular updates to the Community Development Committee, including upon completion of significant milestones, such as Community Consultation; Strategy Development; and Implementation Plan; and
  7. Enhancing Council collaboration and interfacing with Council and Administration on emerging systemic racism issues.
