Anti-Black Racism Plan
In response to the Middlesex-London Health Unit’s June, 2020 declaration that racism is a public health crisis, the Health Unit hired a consultancy group to assist with the development of an Anti-Black Racism Plan (ABRP) for the agency. The Anti-Black Racism Plan was also shaped through the engagement of local African, Caribbean, and Black (ACB) community representatives. The engagement strategies used included a survey, focus groups, and one-on-one sessions with community members who were able to add their voices to the development of the plan.
Read the plan
The ABRP has identified 45 recommendations, which are focused on addressing and eliminating anti-Black racism from public health programs and services in London and Middlesex County, and on collaborating with others to address and eliminate anti-Black racism more broadly.
