Anti-Racism Resources

"It's really important if you care about these issues and care about ending racism in our society then you familiarise yourself with the ways in which race has shaped our society." - Reni Eddo-Lodge

We all need to be committed to learning, praying, self-reflection and having those uncomfortable conversations that will help to deepen understanding and break down barriers, in order to work together to fight the injustices in our society.
We hope these resources will help you in your anti-racism education. Please feel free to share any resources you've found useful in the comments below!
