The Canadian Ecumenical Anti-Racism Network of the Canadian Council of Churches suggests a number of resources for faith communities to mark the day and work toward eliminating racism in the church and beyond.

Created as a response to the killing of 69 protesters at a peaceful anti-apartheid demonstration in Sharpeville, South Africa in 1960, the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination has been observed around the world every year on March 21 since 1966.

The CEARN resource includes sermon, worship, and action ideas.
