Anti-Racist Resources



Over the last few weeks our family has been learning and unlearning, searching for resources that help us grow and change, having hard conversations, looking at ourselves and seeing so clearly that we have work to do. I have collected the resources here that have helped us, the petitions we have signed, and places we have or plan to donate to as soon as possible. We will be adding to this list over time as we continue to educate ourselves and do the work that we are committed to for the long haul. In an effort to amplify Black voices you can also look forward to upcoming posts highlighting the work of Black Designers, Gardeners, Makers and Artists. If you have resource suggestions please share them below. We are especially looking for resources for teenagers. Thanks!
