SpunOut.ie’s Anti-Racism Guide

Learn more about anti-racism and how you can be actively racist in your life.

Written by spunout


Racism is deeply rooted in the structures of our society, giving privilege to mainly white people and which are biased against people of colour. 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. 

SpunOut.ie’s Anti-Racism Guide 

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

Share your experiences as a person from a minority group in Ireland

At spunout we want to prioritise giving young people from minority backgrounds a platform on which they can share their experiences, opinions and advice and actively work to ensure the content we produce is inclusive of all young people in Ireland. If you are a young person living in Ireland from a minority background and would like to share your experiences, get in touch and our Voices Editor will work with you to help publish your work on site.
