National Plan of Action Education Resource

This resource is intended to inform social justice groups from the grassroots to the national level, while conveying to government officials the need for a National Plan of Action for Racial Justice and how it might look.

It explains why the International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) is important, why a National Plan of Action is necessary, and what the components of a plan should be.

We will launch a template that identifies examples of what the plan should include on March 21st.
