DiversityEdu’s Anti-Racism Resource Round-up

We recognize that there are countless lists of resources being shared right now about police brutality and systemic racism. As educators, we’re offering you a resource round-up that is not necessarily meant to be comprehensive, but is instead intended to anchor and guide you as you navigate activism, allyship, and building awareness. Above all, we aim to center Black voices, actions, and thought leadership in the following resources.
