STEP Up for a More Inclusive North Shore

Learn how you can make an impact as an active witness.

A racism-free community is both the right and responsibility of all members of the community.

The North Shore Racism Response Protocol is intended to help us each take a STEP toward building a safer, more inclusive North Shore.

Racism Response Protocol

The Protocol is divided into 4 key sections:

Safety & Prevention

Dismantling racism at its roots to create a more inclusive, equitable community where everyone is welcome, supported, and empowered.

Taking Charge

Rather than being passive observers, active intervention is a widespread community commitment to keep each other safe.

Event Documentation & Reporting

This can help victims feel heard, and can help the community develop a better plan of action.

Providing Care

In order to recover and restore a sense of safety, people need timely, accessible, trauma-informed, and culturally appropriate support.
