Resources on racial equity and racial justice

In my social impact/nonprofit communications circles, I’m often asked for links and resources to racial justice tools and articles. This post is an attempt to compile a list of resources that I’ve either personally used or have been recommended to me by trusted allies (much gratitude, friends!).

Check back often as I plan to update this list regularly. And please drop me a line if you’d like to suggest a link or resource!

“The Black Lives Matter Global Network is a chapter-based, member-led organization whose mission is to build local power and to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.”


“Race Forward’s Building Racial Equity series is a collection of interactive training for those who wish to sharpen their skills and strategies to address structural racism and advance racial equity. Unlike “diversity trainings” which primarily focus on interpersonal relations and understanding, the Building Racial Equity trainings emphasize how to challenge and change institutional racial inequities.”


“These guides and workshops can provide structure for having a dialogue on issues of race, activities focused on helping achieve racial equity and trainings designed to raise awareness and inspire action. Using the filters below, you can view the guides and workshops based on areas of focus, related issues and/or types.”


“Racial Equity Tools is designed to support individuals and groups working to achieve racial equity. This site offers tools, research, tips, curricula and ideas for people who want to increase their own understanding and to help those working toward justice at every level – in systems, organizations, communities and the culture at large.”

In particular, I have found these sections of the Racial Equity Tools site useful:
