Welcome to our Racial Equity Resources!
These resources are here to help you engage on the issue of racial injustice that is ever present in our world today. We acknowledge that there is a system in place that perpetuates harm, racism, white supremacy, inequality, inequity, and injustice that negatively affects people of color (POC), especially those who also identify as female, LGBTQ+, and/or differently abled. We are not perfect and won't ever be. But we can strive to learn, grow, and change together so we can overcome this system of oppression that inflicts our society.
The truth is, no one of us can be free
until everybody is free . - Maya Angelou
