Resources on Racial Inequities

Updated: Sep 2



There is no easy place to start when talking about racial injustice. But sometimes you just have to start.

We want to acknowledge the deep pain and heartache that is being felt across our country and the world right now due to racial injustice, and we can’t do this without acknowledging the same heartache, fear and inequality that people of color have felt for centuries.

Over the past week, our staff has been gathering resources that we have found helpful in educating ourselves on racial inequality, how to be strong allies to fight systemic injustices, and resources to help the marginalized.

This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we hope to add more to it. This is a community of inclusion and education – if you have links or resources you want to add to this list, please send those to us.
