HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

Grounded in the principles of anti-racism, inclusion, and equity, anti-oppressive practice (AOP) seeks to rectify the disproportionate representation of racialized young people in the child welfare and youth criminal justice systems. AOP recognizes the intergenerational impact of institutional power-imbalances and seeks to end the institutional oppression of racialized young people by advocating for system wide policy change, challenging the status-quo, and mitigating power-imbalances at individual and systemic levels of practice. AOP requires stakeholders and service providers to acknowledge and rectify the ways in which they enable systemic racism and racial biases in their own work.
