This resource zeroes in on White privilege as an essential aspect of anti-racism work. Racism is one expression of the White privilege and supremacy that is present in day-to-day interactions and built into systems and church structures. It is impossible to do anti-racism work without examining White identity and the unearned power and privilege that flows from that identity. That is why, while fully aware of intersecting oppressions such as sexism, classism, heterosexism, CEARN (the Canadian Ecumenical Anti-Racism Network) deliberately has chosen to examine White identity, power and privilege without, for the moment, addressing other interconnected oppressions.

The world and the churches require a faithful response to ongoing systems of racial supremacy and racial injustice. One needn't look far to find that daily suffering and struggle continue in Canada and around the globe...

The mandate of the Canadian Ecumenical Anti-Racism Network is to accompany Canadian churches and church organizations who are working toward racial justice, racial reconciliation and peace to transform them and their communities. The CEARN Steering Committee is made up of representatives from members of the Canadian Council of Churches and sister ecumenical organizations.
