Dismantling Anti-Black Bias in Democratic Workplaces: A Toolkit

When we participate in a democratic workplace or collective, we take on the incredible responsibility of shaping an institution—and we therefore have incredible power to resist the harmful cultures, practices, and policies that reinforce anti-Black racism in mainstream institutions. But the persistent messages that we receive that reinforce anti-Blackness can just as easily infiltrate our workplaces if we’re not dedicated to building a shared vision for collective liberation that centers Black liberation and self-determination. Our goal in creating this packet is to equip democratic workplaces with tools to see and address antiBlack racism when it happens, as well as creating systems and practices that undermine anti-Black racism.
