Racism is deeply rooted in the structures of our society, giving privilege to mainly white people and which are biased against people of colour. Since the killing of George Floyd, the Black Lives Matter movement has highlighted the extent to which racism continues to exist around the world. It is vital that we all work to educate ourselves about racism and the experiences of people from minority groups, and actively behave in ways that are anti-racist.'s Anti-Racism Guide 

This guide contains anti-racism articles from the Irish Network Against Racism (INAR) and, guides to understanding the Black Lives Matter movement, lived experience pieces by young people from minority backgrounds and opinion pieces as to why being actively anti-racist is essential.
