Anti-Racism Resources

As an organization whose core mission statement promotes diversity, it is our responsibility to denounce injustice wherever we encounter it and we stand with the Black Lives Matter movement to call for justice for the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tamir Rice, Mike Brown, Philando Castile and the other 99% of black victims of police brutality whose perpetrators have not been held accountable by the justice system.

It is also our duty to learn and listen to black voices, and to continue to make strides towards a more anti-racist society. It is up to all of us to do the work, and not the responsibility of our black colleagues to educate us and challenge our biases. As such, we have compiled a list of Anti-Racism Resources below which we encourage you to visit:
