About the Journal
The Journal of Antiracist EduAction: Teaching and Beyond is an open-access, transformative learning-based journal. It provides an opportunity for members of the Healing From Racism Journey (HRJ) Program at Simon Fraser University (SFU) to showcase their work from the program with the HRJ community and the wider public. The JAETB supports the facilitation of knowledge translation and mobilization that is rooted in lived experiences and values of anti-Blackness racism, anti-Indigenous racism, anti-Asian racism, and a commitment to addressing other forms of violence against IBPOC/BIPOC communities. As the HRJ program empowers participants to engage in critical self-examination, research, and growth, the JAETB extends this individual journey into a collective, peer support based space that retains the program’s core values. This is evident in the journal’s policies including those regarding submission guidelines, rights of authors, and public access. Given these values, the journal is also open to submissions by HRJ facilitators and guests as part of the program’s community. While the HRJ program and community actively engage with antiracist pedagogy and praxis, this journal does not intend to replicate the editorial review process characteristic of traditional publication processes. The JAETB is instead anchored by the HRJ facilitators who serve as guides for authors to publish their work. In doing so, authors are able to partake in the active dissemination of their own learning, unlearning, and relearning while contributing to a larger collection of embodied, antiracist works that is in turn supported by a community of learners.
As the HRJ program empowers participants to engage in critical self-examination, research, and growth, the JAETB extends this individual journey into a collective, peer support based space that retains the program’s core values. The journal will not accept or publish pieces that uphold racist, misogynistic, homophobic, or colonial views. The goal of the HRJ program and JAETB is to move beyond those views, and disrupt the structures created and upheld by them.
The Journal of Antiracist EduAction: Teaching and Beyond uses a version of open review process, where participants and facilitators of the Healing from Racism Journey program provide each other feedback on each other’s projects throughout the year-long program.
