Learn More About Racism

A key step we can take against racism is to learn more about it.  Racism today doesn’t look the way it did 55 years ago.  It has morphed and adopted “coded” and so-called “colorblind” language.  We need to be able to identify it and develop the skills to stand up against it and dismantle it.  Much of what we need to know is unreported or misrepresented in the media.  Exploring the resources on this site (listed below) can be a next step in developing a life-long practice of learning about race, racism, and anti-racism.
