As we mourn these recent losses, we’re also coming to terms with our nation’s continued history of racism. We’re asking ourselves uncomfortable questions. We’re trying to understand our place in the racial justice movement.

It’s not an easy journey, but it’s an important one—and it’s one we can take, together.

But where to get started? We’ve pulled together some resources that can help us better understand systemic racism. And, we’ll continue to roll-in resources that help us recognize white privilege, speak to children about race and racism, and serve as powerful allies.

It’s time to open our eyes, our ears, and our hearts.

Understanding systemic racism

In order to realize racial justice, it’s critically important that we first understand our nation’s long history of racial discrimination, targeted disenfranchisement, and de facto laws that originated during times of slavery and the Jim Crow era—and that still exist in many of our institutions today.

These resources can serve as an important launching point for exploration, providing us with the knowledge necessary to begin advocating for real systematic change.

How to talk about racism and race with children

We all know racism is learned. And, all of us can have a powerful impact simply by educating our kids and challenging them to think critically about racism and race in America.

It sure may seem like a daunting task, but we all know it’s a necessary one. In sharing our knowledge with the next generation, and continuing to instill values of equity and inclusion, we can create the just world we seek.
