A Social-Ecological Model of Racism & Anti-Racism
This infographic frames racism and anti-racism within a social-ecological model to promote an understanding of the multifaceted, overlapping, and interactive factors that contribute to and maintain racial inequities. The infographic also presents strategies that can be employed across multiple levels to help eliminate racism, address its multiple impacts, and achieve a more just society.
Racism and anti-racism are examined through the four levels of a social-ecological model: systemic/societal, institutional/community, interpersonal/relational, and intrapersonal/individual. The infographic examines racism and anti-racism in the context of each level, as well as provides examples of actions and policies contributing to racism and strategies for implementing anti-racist practices.
