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.

Anti Racism in Sport Campaign Research Report

December 15, 2021

A shared goal amongst the partners on the Anti-Racism in Sport Campaign is to use research and education to develop tools to identify and disrupt racism in sport in order to address and eliminate barriers to sport participation for First Nations, Métis Nation, Inuit, Black, Racialized and religious minority communities in Winnipeg.

The research described in this report was conducted to inform the Campaign’s public awareness campaign, school presentations, training presentations and workshops, and the development of an Anti-Racism in Sport Accord. The research involved 12 online focus groups involving 39 participants who take part in sport in Winnipeg as athletes, coaches, officials and/or service providers. Through these focus group discussions, participants provided their insights via their lived experiences as members of Winnipeg’s sport community.
