Racism is a tough topic, one that makes a great deal of people uncomfortable to even begin bridging. However, discomfort
most often means growth, and there is no time like the present to grow into being a true ally for Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Colour.
We must understand that when we deny their humanity, we lose a part of our own. When we don't look inward at our own internalized racism, dismantling it at its very core, we perpetuate the ills of white privilege that do harm to BIPOC.
As a part of this community, I strongly urge you to support the work of these creators / writers / activists / educators by reading their content as well as purchasing their courses, webinars, workshops and books.
