Resources For Gender Justice Advocates To Challenge Anti-Black Racism

Gender-based violence (GBV) will not end without liberation from white supremacy and anti-Black racism. Gender justice advocates must recognize and confront the intersecting systems of oppression that disproportionately affect Black communities. By prioritizing anti-Black racism frameworks and centring the experiences of Black survivors and communities, advocates can work towards dismantling the structures that perpetuate both GBV and anti-Black racism. This liberation work requires centring Black voices, taking daily action individually and collectively, and advocating for systemic change.  

The following is a community-curated list of free books, articles, blog posts, podcasts, and videos exploring addressing anti-Black racism in the movement to end gender-based violence. We chose freely available articles, books, and videos to ensure accessibility for a wide community, recognizing that financial barriers should not limit access to valuable resources for education and advocacy. 

Possibility Seeds invites gender justice advocates at community organizations and post-secondary institutions to join us in reading and engaging with these resources to help us all strengthen our action plans to uproot anti-Black racism in our work.  This list is a living document: if you have resources to add to this list, please email
