Resources for Anti-Racism Education

Links to help you get informed about how you can build racial equity

As humans, we are all part of a system that is embedded with systemic injustices. For some this includes racism and bias, both of which can shape the way we treat or mistreat people based on the color of their skin.

Becoming anti-racist is a lifelong process. We have gathered the following resources for anyone wishing to educate themselves on how long-standing historical oppression continues to manifest itself today and how we can each work to build a more just society.
