Social Justice Resources

Social Justice Resources

Learning about social justice is an on-going process. You don’t just read an article on buzzfeed about microaggressions and magically eradicate them from your thoughts and speech. Unlearning the bias that is inherently present in our culture takes constant learning. I’ve worked with a few student who have wanted to start on this learning process and decided that a “syllabus” of resources that are freely available on the web would be helpful to some. This is a list of articles that have been meaningful to me as I’ve continued to learn about creating equitable communities. This list will continue to grow as I remember articles and books that I’ve read and find ways to share them here.
