Anti-Racism Resources

We are re-evaluating how our practices reflect our values, and becoming even more clear about living our mission.

We are starting by making all of our future decisions through the lens of centering the emotional and spiritual well-being of Black and Indigenous people.

We invite you to join us. We hope this living list of resources can help give you insight into the ideas shaping our choices. And we insist that when you re-join us in person, you join us in celebrating Black joy and protecting Black & Indigenous souls and bodies, as we all work together to eradicate our internal and external anti-Blackness and dismantle white supremacist systems.

As we move forward, we’ll offer more supported learning opportunities for those just beginning this work, or those who’d like to explore these ideas in community.

This list is a living document and will be updated regularly.
