Our Resources Page is in start up mode. For now, it is focused on learning about race and then feminism. Anti-racism and Feminism go hand in hand.. Understanding white male supremacy is a great avenue for us to understand white supremacy. We are focusing on race first since beginning to eliminate systemic racism will benefit all of us. We know we need to go beyond race and feminism like the next most pressing issue, climate change. We have numerous other issues to find resource guides that enable learning and action.
We have procrastinated solving so many of our problems that they are 'wicked' problems meaning no silver bullet solutions, no simple solutions, but rather requiring complex and multiple solutions. 'Wicked' problems are those that likely cannot be solved in total or may take decades. We don't have that kind of time. We can't look for simple solutions and we can't take our eye off the problem and solutions because we get bored, wanting to move on to something else.
At this time with the opportunity we have to take protests to a movement to drive change, we selected race as our first set of resources for your use. These are very limited resource links to drive learning and action and have been vetted.Our book lists for feminism and race should also be helpful in learning about race and feminism, INCLUDING ACTION YOU CAN TAKE.
SELECTED RACE RELATED LEARNING AND ACTION GUIDES
This is a superb learning and action guide. I really appreciated that it had links to so many of the recommended resources. To create this learning and action path took a lot of work by Victoria Alexander and she keeps it up-to-date. White people have so much to learn about race, racism, and anti-racism. I started with Watch which includes videos, movies, TV shows, and documentaries. It will take 20 minutes a day, even a half hour, to take advantage of the learning and action recommended in The Anti-Racist Resource Guide. Gave you the link a second time since this is such a valuable resource.
Justice in June gives you a curriculum for race learning and action. It uses books, readings, and talks to teach and drive action. It is broken into convenient learning segments depending on if you have 10 minutes, 25 minutes, or 45 minutes today. It has excellent resource recommendations not matter what time you have.
Campaign Zero takes Obama's 21st Century Policing Task Force Report's framework and marries it with a lot of the specifics we have learned through the protests and the work that has been going on for years. It's Agenda to End Police Violence is succinct, but covers everything we need to expect from police and municipalities as well as communities. You can download "An Agenda for Ending Police Violence on their home page at the bottom.
This a thoughtful list of a variety of learning and action things white people can do to move us in a different direction to get change. This list is worth skimming and selecting a few items you can learn or do each week. This list is updated regularly.
