ETFO’s Anti-Oppressive Framework: A Primer

The Elementary Teachers’ Federation has launched a new and extended Equity Statement which includes a definition of the Anti-Oppressive Framework. To support all members in using the Anti-Oppressive Framework and deepening equitable practices in all union, school, and community spaces, ETFO has produced a new resource: Anti-Oppressive Framework: a Primer.

The document provides an entry point for all learners and an opportunity for critical engagement, understanding and action planning on anti-racist education, anti-oppressive practices and equity initiatives.

This resource includes:

  • A definition and description of the anti-oppressive framework;
  • Common equity-related terminology;
  • Explanation and guiding questions of seven components for implementing the anti-oppressive framework; and
  • Proactive strategies and resources to address oppression within individual, ideological and structural spaces.
