The events of the past couple of weeks have thrown issues of race and structural racism into the public sphere. It is each and every one of our responsibility to read up, educate ourselves, and use our voices to be actively anti-racist. It is not enough to simply be 'not racist'.
This is an individual journey to examine your position, accountability, and the ways in which you are part of systemic racism, and to then learn how to extract yourself from these structures.
We have compiled a list of informative resources (which is by no means extensive - and we will continue to update it) on issues of race, racism, anti-racism, and climate intersectionality.
