Campaigns

The Racialised Students' Collective runs a number of campaigns around racism, xenophobia, and colonialism. 

UNLEARN RACISM

ABOUT UNITED FOR EQUITY: CHALLENGE RACISM, CHALLENGE COLONIALISM

Challenging all forms of discrimination and oppression is an important part of the work of the student movement. Racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and all forms of oppression can affect how certain groups of people access post-secondary education, and perpetuate inequities in society based on gender, race, socio-economic status, (dis)ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, citizenship status and other factors.

The Canadian Federation of Students works through its constituency groups to promote equity and challenge all forms of discrimination. A series of equity buttons are available and templates can be downloaded [click 'Download' below] for students' unions to use on their campuses.

RACIALISED MICROAGGRESSIONS

The Racialised Students' Collective runs a campaign on Racialised Microaggressions where we collect stories and experiences of covert (and often overt) interactions of day-to-day racism.

“Racial Microaggressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioural, or enviornmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults towards people of colour.” Racial Microaggressions in Everyday Life: Implications for Clinical Practice
