Antiracism Resources

Education is crucial to fostering personal growth, learning about white supremacy and gaining a better understanding of racial challenges in our country. Below are a myriad of resources to help us on our journey.



We recommend signing up for the Anti-Racism Daily newsletter which allows Nicole Cardoza to help us dismantle white supremacy through education and action ~ each and every day. If you’re looking to grow your knowledge about equity and inclusion, go to the Community Foundation of San Carlos’ website where they have learning opportunities for all ages in their annual Equity Challenge. For educators and caregivers dedicated to raising children who are thoughtful, informed and brave about race, EmbraceRace has developed the Color-Brave Caregiver Framework.


Tema Okum’s website has everything you need to know about White Supremacy Culture and how damaging it is to everyone involved. Cross Cultural Solidarity aims to become a one-stop site for people to plug into the wide universe of racial justice history and is especially committed to strengthening bonds of multiracial unity. Anti Racist Education and Teaching Resources is a comprehensive toolkit on overcoming racism and fixing economic inequality.
