Dismantling White Supremacy Culture 

In light of the recent racially charged events that have occurred over the past few weeks, including but not limited to the unjust murders of Ahmaud Arbery (unarmed, chased down and murdered while jogging in his neighborhood), George Floyd and Breonna Taylor (unarmed and killed by police officers), and the Central Park Incident, protests are erupting as people have taken a stance in solidarity with Black people all over the country.

By their many screens and/or your own frustrations, your kids may have been inundated with this too. It’s important to know that even during a time of sheltering in place, Black people and other Marginalized folks still have the ever-present danger of hate that could cost them their lives and even in the current state of this global pandemic we must keep moving forward the work of dismantling the never-ending public health crisis of white supremacy culture.

Below you will find a list of resources that may be helpful in self-education and can be used to guide discussions at home to give insight into what it’s like to be a BIPOC and marginalized throughout America and across the globe.

In Solidarity,

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
