Anti-Oppression Policy: Ontario Council for International Cooperation (OCIC)

You can read OCIC‘s Anti-oppression policy on their website, or included below. As they say in their policy, having an anti-oppression policy is only a part of a community group’s ability to live their values internally:

This policy will not automatically make OCIC oppression-free, eliminate oppressive organizational structures and personal behaviours, or erase the grievances of previously oppressed and marginalized people. This policy aims at informing and increasing our commitment to addressing and confronting oppressive behaviours and systems.

The OCIC have made not only this policy, but also their policy monitoring framework, available in the hopes that it will inspire other anti-oppression policies.
