Research has commenced on the development of an Anti-Black Racism Policy Framework. The research consists of a landscape review of Anti-Black Racism policies in Canada, US and UK and consultations with Black screen professionals about their experiences with challenges and suggestions for breaking down barriers. The research team will be engaged with a Working Group of Black industry professionals and those with experience developing Anti-Black Racism policies. Upon completion of the research, the team will develop a framework that will identify Black screen industry values and goals, anti-Black racism policies and advocacy steps to fulfill those policies and goals. Screen industry organizations will be able to use the framework to develop their own Anti-Black Racism policies.
Expected Release Date – March 2023
