This federal election, ask political candidates how they plan to advance racial equity.
The United Church’s anti-racism policy includes an invitation for people to speak to the world about anti-racism efforts beyond the church and in society. Engaging in conversations about anti-racism and politics during the election is one way of living this out.
Work towards dismantling systemic racism by focusing on a specific area and how that area relates to racial justice. Candidates could be asked, for example, what specific actions they and their political party plan to take in order to create more racially just, equitable, and accessible systems and services.
