Confronting Racism Discussion Group (CRDG) is a discussion group committed to confronting racism in ourselves, our community, and our world by listening to BIPOC voices in anti-racism literature, films, podcasts, etc., with the ultimate goal of empowering Black, Indigenous and people of colour. To avoid learning in a white vacuum, we have our partner group of BIPOC community members who cover the same material and are available to answer questions that may arise, but do not attend the Zoom discussions. CRDG is hosted by the West-Island Black Community Association Inc. 

  1. This group is not a place to pat yourself on the back for being a “good white person.” The ultimate goal is always about empowering the BIPOC community, rather than focusing on alleviating our own white guilt. 
  2. Educating ourselves with existing resources, instead of relying on oppressed persons to do the work of teaching us.
  3. Always listening, questioning our own thoughts, and understanding anti-racism is life-long work.
Group Details

For those who have not experienced being part of a minority group who are invested in working towards racial justice, beginning by confronting their own biases through education. The discussions are held in English and for those over 18 years old. 

Set up like a book club, but not limited to books. Monthly content is voted on by the group with material ranging from documentaries, anti-racism books, biographies, articles, films, podcasts, etc. We recommended first reading White Fragility or White Supremacy and Me to bring a level of self-reflection to the other material covered – but this is not required before starting! 

Zoom meetings on the first Tuesday of every month from 18h30-20h 

Membership to the West-Island Black Community Association and providing your own copy of the material covered for the month.

If you are unable to make this financial contribution but are interested in the group, please still register and reach out to us via
