It's for anyone looking for resources to ask better questions, do the inner work, and contribute to anti-racism battles all around the country.

Moreover, we believe that for allies, the growth mindset is extremely important - we have an incredible amount to learn, and we can always do better.
Our priority is to elevate voices of Black writers, authors, historians, and creators.

By two non-Black allies continuously striving to do better. All the resources found on the site are linked, and any credit should be given to the activists, authors, and creators of those resources.
