An important part of activism is continuous education. It is the duty of every activist to learn about the history of racism in America and what steps they can take to combat racism in all forms. It is not enough to not be racist; we must be anti-racist to overturn centuries of injustice. Use the links below to get started on your anti-racism education so you can be a more informed and effective advocate for racial justice in America.
As a team, we are regularly learning and aim to evolve the conversation we’re having. This is by no means a comprehensive list.
