Anti-Racist Resources We've Found Helpful
In light of all the turmoil and injustice we have seen recently, but which has been all too common for far too long, it has been incredibly hard to find the right words to use for fear of getting it wrong. We are at a monumental moment in history and will not let the momentum end, as a small business & as individuals and we will continue to support the Black Lives Matter movement. We are spending a lot of time, reading, listening and learning. There are so many important resources out there but we have compiled a list of some of the resources we found very helpful and informative.
