Anti-Racism Resources

Recent events have shown us how imperative it is that we explore and listen to the perspectives of others.  We must do the work to challenge societal and structural norms, engage in constructive discourse, and educate ourselves in order to create tangible and much-needed change in today's world.

By no means is this meant to be an exhaustive list of resources and we know that this important body of work continues to grow and evolve.  If there is a resource you would like to recommend, please email and share it with us!
