Anti-Racism Resources

Moral Monday Group’s Resources on Racism

One’s journey toward better understanding their role in contributing to racism today must first be a personal one.  That journey should include deep reflection on one’s own life and background, how racism has influenced one’s thinking, and recognition of what history one must learn (or re-learn through a non-White lens).  Addressing systemic racism in organizations and society is the lifelong work we all must choose to take up, and myriad resources address organizational and societal racism.  However, this work only can be accomplished with a commitment to also continue the hard “inner work.”  The following resources (and related audio/video resources by these authors) are a recommended starting point.
