Episode 123: Anti-Racism Resources To Participate in the Black Lives Matter Conversation

The recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Amaud Arbery, David McAtee, and Tony McDade have re-sparked the conversation around racism in America and the Black Lives Matter movement. While there’s a lot to take in right now, the ultimate goal is to make sure the action, conversations, and resources shared leads to sustainable change in our world. This episode covers what we have been reading, listening to, learning from, and sharing in order to uplift Black voices, while also owning our responsibility to make our world a more equitable place.
