How can we rethink inclusion to step up the fight against systemic inequalities?

In 2020, a series of major cases of police misconduct in American cities set off a powerful, worldwide movement for radical behavioural and institutional transformation.

Beyond law enforcement, society as a whole needs to address its prejudices—conscious and unconscious—and transform the way it treats racialized people, minority groups, and vulnerable communities. We are past the point of naming and explaining: now is the time for this exclusive and repressive system to change.

From individual reckonings to organizational change, the work that needs doing is complex and delicate. This issue of Raccords explores ways to foster the full expression of the multiple identities that make up our society so that, at long last, everyone has their rightful place in it.
