Scaffolded Anti-Racist Resources - information - this is a Google Doc with a huge collection of useful tools and additional links and recommendations. I found many of the referenced works massively informative early in my own effort of understanding systemic racism and how I am a part of it (and what I can do to work against it). Like many of the resources I link to here, it is most valuable as a jumping-off point to many, many other places to learn.


Anti-racism resources for white people - information - another really large and excellent Google doc with a ton of great links and resources, ranging from articles to books to podcasts and videos. Also links to even more excellent collections.


White Supremacy Culture (Still Here/2021 Update) - information - this is a wonderful PDF and an updated version of an older resource by Tema Okun about the elements of white supremacy culture and how it manifests. Vital reading for anyone interested in engaging in racial justice efforts on any level. The update includes some very important observations about how these kinds of resources can become weaponized and used to cause other kinds of harm, even by careless but well-intentioned users.


Radical Dharma - information - this is the web site for an excellent book which I highly recommend to anyone interested in Buddhism or other dharmic traditions, especially anyone who is white. It addresses the ways in which misuse of such traditions can perpetuate harm upon Black people, especially Black queer people.


13th (documentary) - information - this is a full version of the documentary 13th from Netflix, hosted on YouTube. The documentary explores ways in which the governmental structure of the United States has been deliberately shaped to oppress and enslave Black people, and how the foundations for the carceral system that unjustly and disproportionately imprisons and kills Black people is written into the actual Constitution itself.


Weapons of Math Destruction - information - a book that explores the ways in which mathematical research and computer algorithms are used to contribute to oppression, especially in terms of upholding systems of racial injustice.


Algorithms of Oppression - information - another look at the digital tech sector and the ways that software perpetuates racism and harm.


Ijeoma Oluo - information - website of an excellent author whose works include the book So You Want to Talk About Race. Good additional resources linked from her site.


Black Trauma and work - information - a good article for helping white colleagues begin to understand how the lifelong trauma of being racialized may affect those around us. Introductory level, but a great conversation starter for those new to the idea of racial inequity and injustice.


Why Tech Degrees Are Not Putting More Blacks and Hispanics Into Tech Jobs - information - warning: paid New York Times article. Still a useful examination of the reality of systemic racism in the digital-technology sector. This article is from 2016 and remains painfully relevant in the closing days of 2022.


The Dos' and Don'ts of Being a Good Ally - actionable - quick and easy steps for checking ourselves and making sure we're not being a problem with our good intentions. This is a great starting place, but please keep in mind that it's just that - a way to get going on building better habits and ways of relating and connecting with people. Don't expect this advice to fix everything by itself!


Short Checklist for Allies Against Racism - actionable - PDF document; another (slightly more in-depth) list of things we can do to check whether or not we're doing effective work when it comes to racism. This is a slightly older resource, and please be aware that it does have some suggestions that may become problematic in many contexts (when applied carelessly) - for example, some of the actions on this list can easily turn into "speaking over" people instead of amplifying what they have to say for themselves. Use with care and always defer to the experiences and feedback of racially oppressed people first and foremost.


21-Day Racial Equity Challenge - actionable - this is an excellent set of actionable, concrete things we can do to build our understanding of racism and to take part in anti-racist work. It is framed as a "challenge" and designed as a way to help build long-lasting habits. I think it is a good tool for those who can form habits using such structures.


Justice in June - actionable - this is a Google Doc with a very useful set of resources for getting invested in the work of supporting the Black community. It also contains links to some other excellent resources and collections. It's a great tool to use in group settings, like a circle of friends, a workplace, a family, and so on.


Race Implicit Association Test - actionable - the IAT methods can have some shortcomings and limitations, but this test in particular can be a very eye-opening tool for those just beginning to explore the realm of racial justice. Especially effective for those who don't think they could possibly have racial biases.


Common English Words/Phrases with Racist Origins - actionable - for all English speakers, a great introductory list of things we might say that are connected to systemic racism. Very much a "tip of the iceberg" kind of resource, but useful for helping to start conversations and get people to start thinking more about the ways we perpetuate harm without even knowing it.


A guide on how to collaborate with anti-racist Black people for activism - actionable - a great introductory resource; the title nicely covers the subject matter. Short and easy to read and pass around for starting (or refocusing) conversations.


Anti-Racism Newsletter - information - periodic updates on making an actual impact, by Sharon Hurley Hall.


Website of Ashani Mfuko - actionable - training courses for anti-racist work.


"True Anti-Racism Allies Academy" - actionable - subscription-based community with support, guidance, and accountability for committed learners.


White Women: Everything You Already Know About Your Own Racism and How to Do Better - actionable - this short book by Regina Jackson and Saira Rao is a powerhouse of candid, honest anti-racism aimed specifically at white women. Anyone enculturated into white femininity - regardless of actual gender identity - should read this book.
