The Road to Becoming an Antiracism Organization

Show Summary Details


This chapter proposes a broadly sketched road for human service agencies, which also assume that mitigating the impact of racism may go some distance in helping them achieve whatever their central goals are. It suggests a framework for becoming an anti-racism organization. It draws from the literature about institutional stages of anti-racism development, offers a description of anti-racism change activities for practitioners, and suggests change processes that social service agencies can pursue. Included is an organizational audit to assist in this process. Barriers and roadblocks, and ideas about responding, are considered.

Keywords: community-based practice; antiracism agency; social service agencies; organizational change
