FIELD NOTES | Centering Anti-Racist and Equity Frameworks in Anti-Poverty Work

Poverty Reduction Strategy, Racial Equity, Jill Zacharias, CRP Publications, Homepage Resources, Communities Ending Poverty, Equity

Tamarack’s Communities Ending Poverty hosted two conversations that explored how CEP members were developing, implementing, and centering anti-racist and equity frameworks in their anti-poverty work.


CEP member communities were asked to speak to the following:

  • How they began shifting mindsets to actively tackle anti-racism
  • What internal and external actions demonstrate their commitment to anti-racism and equity
  • How they created space to think outside of the box with new partners and to integrate new ideas into practice
  • What has worked well, what challenges were navigated, and what advice they had to share.

The following organizations were included in this work:
  • Saskatoon Poverty Reduction Partnership
  • City of Vancouver
  • Alberni Clayoquot Health Network
  • Ville de Montréal service de la diversité et de l'inclusion sociale
  • Vibrant Communities Calgary
  • Wellbeing Waterloo Region
  • Winnipeg Poverty Reduction Council
