Anti-Racism Ally - Where to Start


Angela Davis said, “In a racist society, it is not enough to be quietly non-racist, we must be actively anti-racist.” Black people have endured a long history of racism and systemic oppression in the United States and we are watching history unfold as they and other People of Color embark on a revolution of dismantling centuries-long systems of oppression that are not only their cause for concern, but all of ours. This is an opportunity for white and white-passing people to listen, learn, and take action in solidarity with them. We have created the following list of resources, designed to amplify the voices of the BIPOC leaders of anti-racism work, for those who want to start unpacking their own white supremacy, dismantle long-standing systems of oppression and ultimately become better allies.

If you are a BIPOC and have recommendations for modification of this list, please e-mail us at info@findyourshinetherapy.
