Anti-racism Resource

This document is intended to serve as a resource for non-Black people to deepen our anti-racism work. If you haven’t engaged in anti-racism work in the past, start now. Feel free to add more resources to help us continue to be educated on how to become better allies and to continue our fight to end racism.
