Racial Justice

ANTI-RACISM RESOURCES

It is important not to be silent during this time. We have to speak out against systemic racism and discrimination and move from being non-racist to anti-racist. We need to make commitments and take clear actions against racism. If we don’t know how, we need to learn how. Here are some reading, watching, listening, acting and supporting options to do so. The list is by no means exhaustive.
