Since we first published this piece in June, peaceful protests have continued across the country against the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, and in solidarity with all BIPOC for the trauma and loss they have experienced as communities in America. The shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin is the latest act of violence against Black Americans, and peaceful protests against such brutality have been met with deadly force. As a direct result of our privilege, many of us will never be able to fully understand what it means to live under conditions of oppression and fear, but that does not mean we are unable to take a stand with our neighbors of color against these systemic injustices. In fact, it is our duty to educate ourselves on racism and the racist structures that exist all around us in order to grasp what role we can play in dismantling them through anti-racism. 

To that end, we have compiled a list of resources that either provide direct help to those who need it most in the fight for justice or provide educational materials for allies looking to develop a more critical understanding of the responsibilities that white people and people outside BIPOC communities play in the struggle for a more equitable society. This list is by no means exhaustive and will continue to be updated.
