Anti-Racism Position Statement from CAPA Subcommittee for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Posted by sarahduignan on Sat, Jun 6, 2020

We, as Members of The Canadian Association for Physical Anthropology /L’Association Canadienne d’Anthropologie Physique (CAPA-ACAP), recognize that while race is a biological fallacy, it is a sociocultural reality with profound lived consequences. Racism is real. The structural racism present in Canada has direct biological and social consequences that disproportionately affect individuals of the Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities.
