Infused throughout all aspects of our society, racism corrupts our entire social fabric. To improve intergenerational well-being and equity in our communities, we must first acknowledge our legacy of racism and understand the role that interpersonal, institutional, and structural racism play in creating avoidable disparities. The Racial Justice Journey Library offers a place to start: a compilation of resources and tools for people, communities, and organizations to learn, reflect, and take action to address racism in their work and lives.
