“We must awaken to the ways that race and racism have shaped our own brains, our ways of being in the world, and our hopes for the work we might do together.”
During the school year, we offer a weekly newsletter with resources for your continued racial literacy. These are resources that we, as facilitators, also use. We invite you to join us in on-going learning and growth.
The newsletters offer
. . . what we're reading for ourselves and what we're reading to young people in our lives.
. . . what trainings we're attending to increase our own racial literacy.
. . . what podcasts we're listening to and what webinars we're watching.

We hope that you are engaging in increased radical self-care this week. Even while we witnessed an almost unprecedented trial outcome, we also lost another young person to state-sanctioned violence against Youth of Color. Even as we protest in bodies weary from centuries long resistance to anti-Black racism, we must also care for ourselves so that we can be whole in that resistance.

We write on this historic morning, when justice was served one year after George Floyd lost his life to police violence. Though we know that this was more than the act of one officer, yesterday a decision was made to uphold justice and acknowledge the long relationship between race and policing.
