Socialist Anti-Racism: Beyond the Basics

These three discussions are for people who understand that racism must be fought as a specific form of oppression but that this fight is linked to the struggle against other forms of oppression and the capitalist social order as a whole. Their aim is to help us be more effective fighters against racism in Canada today. Participants are asked to read short readings before each session.
