Formed in 2013, STIR: Stop Institutional Racism is a nationwide network of public health professionals and activist scholars committed to ended institutional racism within the administration of the public health sector.
STIR strives to remove barriers to indigenous well-being in Aotearoa New Zealand by mobilising allies, engaging in decolonisation, influencing policy, monitoring government performance, re-energising conversations around working with te Tiriti o Waitangi, strengthening the evidence base about sites of racism and anti-racism praxis and generally stirring.
In previous years, we have hosted a symposium, writing and critiqued policy, conducted research studies, written papers and a book, hosted master classes, presented at the United Nations, built a boutique social movement and done media outreach.
We have over 250 Associates through our social media outreach.
