Black Leaders Are Reminding us of the Necessity of Being Anti-Racist

As a mostly white community, we’ve come to know that it’s not enough to simply oppose racism or to consider ourselves “not racist.” We created this page to be a resource.

We know that it’s our responsibility to educate ourselves about systemic racism. It’s important to continue to raise our awareness. If we are committed to ending racism, it’s important to actively work for racial justice.

What is Systemic Racism?

You’ve probably heard the term but may not be fully informed. 

This video explains systemic racism and the big picture of white privilege. Learn how it manifests and how white people benefit in ways of which they may not be aware. 

This video also explains implicit bias, which is a form of unconscious racism. White people can raise their consciousness, gain awareness of biases, examine assumptions, and learn about specific aspects of white privilege that may not have been obvious before.

This increase in awareness is an important foundation. We can’t attain authentic racial justice if we don’t first fully understand all the manifestations of it.
