Ensuring you and your team are taking an anti-racism approach requires developing a disciplined practice of challenging, abolishing, and/or transforming the beliefs, ideas, behaviors, policies, institutions, and systems that uphold systemic racism, the oppression of Black people and other groups historically marginalized by white supremacy and its many expressions.
Applying an anti-racist lens shifts power, voice, and perspective to the lived experiences of communities of color with the intent of collective liberation through solutions that equitably distribute resources and foster self-determination.
Anti-racism is the path that leads to racial equity.

When using data, it is critical to unpack the stories behind the statistics, graphs, and catchy media sound bites. The power of the data narrative in decision-making can significantly impact policies and resource allocation, and it is the community from which data derives that is entitled to its ownership, narrative creation, and benefits.
