Anti-Racism Reform in the Faculty of Education
We at EdUS have been working to follow up on our statement against racism and racial injustice with concrete action within the faculty, as well as within EdUS itself. Our goal moving forward as an organization is to acknowledge the harm that we have done, as a predominantly white council, by not taking the initiative to interrogate our own whiteness, and not taking the proper steps to ensure that we are actively recruiting, supporting, and engaging the Black and Indigenous students within our faculty. To be silent is to be complicit, and racism is not germane to the United States—it is ever present in both Canada, and McGill as a whole.
 
We would like to use this opportunity to ensure that the reforms we are working to enact align with and amplify the needs of the communities and individuals most affected by these policies and injustices.

Therefore, if you identify as Black, Indigenous, or another community of colour or marginalized group and have calls or concerns that you would like to put forward please email us at edus.anti.racism@gmail.com or fill out the form below, if you feel comfortable doing so. Further, if you have experienced racism, discrimination, discomfort, or mistreatment within our faculty in any way we ask that you also please fill out the form below, if you feel comfortable doing so. This can be done either anonymously or non-anonymously. The testimony we receive will help inform our steps towards institutional reform within the faculty, as well as within EdUS itself.

**Please note that only select individuals on EdUS will have access to the specific details (names, people involved etc.) shared within this form, to ensure confidentiality is maintained. If you would like more information on who these individuals are, or on anything else regarding the process before filling out this form, please feel free to email us at edus.anti.racism@gmail.com
