Anti-Racism in Sport

The Anti-Racism in Sport Campaign seeks to increase, promote, and engage in discussions on anti-racism in sport about the presence of all levels of racism in sport in Winnipeg and its impact on people’s lives, and raise awareness, address, and eliminate racism and discrimination experienced by First Nations, Metis, Inuit, Black, Racialized, and Religious Minority communities in sport in Winnipeg.
 
This campaign seeks to help people identify and disrupt all forms of racism through multiple activities that includes research, school presentations, stakeholder training, a public awareness campaign, and an Anti-Racism in Sport Accord.
