Yes, its here is used instead of racism to avoid repeating the word eg; We oppose racism in all racism's forms.

Hi, Heru. "its" is a possessive prnoun (possessive form of "it"). The meaning here as follows: we oppose all the forms of racism Do not confuse "its" with "it's" (=‘it is’ or ‘it has’). Hope it'll help)
