Addressing anti-Blackness + Resources for Black People
As we work towards collective liberation, we recognize the need for non-Black people to name anti-Blackness, to act to disrupt it and to not do business as usual. We recognize the need for white people to move back in terms of hoarding resources and to move up and take action. And we recognize the need to support healing for Black people. We have designed this month’s content with that in mind.
