Be An Anti-Racist Ally
There is not much I can say that hasn’t already been said by those far more eloquent. For me, the best way I can be helpful right now is by having small group conversations with my communities to encourage open dialogue and learn/teach/empathize. Hopefully these smaller conversations lead to larger ripples.
With that in mind, some of my colleagues and I put together a list of resources for our fellow coworkers to help educate those who want to learn more about racism, the black community, talking to children about race, and ways to be an ally.
