Resources for Anti-Racist Education and Organizing

There are tons of resources out there with information on undoing racism, collective liberation, and the history and present tools of white supremacy.  The most useful resource in anti-racist work is listening to voices of people of color.  We strongly suggest you look into reading books and articles by authors of color, and books that provide different versions of the history we were taught in school.  The resources below are not a comprehensive list of information on white privilege, white supremacy, and racism in the United States.  These are just some to get you started!
