This factsheet was created by YouthREX.

HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

An ally is someone who recognizes that the privilege they have in relation to others is a result of the unjust patterns of a society – and commits to changing these patterns.

This factsheet  developed from “Anti-Racist Praxis with Street-Involved African Canadian Youth” by Julian Hasford, Peter Amponsah & Treisha Hylton, in Mental Health and Addiction Interventions for Youth Experiencing Homelessness: Practical Strategies for Front-Line Providers (Canadian Observatory on Homelessness Press, 2018)  outlines actions you can take to be an ally in working against anti-Black racism.
