Resources for Racial Justice
compiled by the Bellarmine Dismantling Racism Team

The Link above provides a selection of resources that members of the Dismantling Racism Team recommend as a starting point for those interested in understanding and responding to racism, white supremacy, and racial inequities today.  We hope they will open the door to or further support you in your journey towards active anti-racism and transformative change.   

We  includes some church statements and background information on racism, then list organizations, films, and and written resources, including the list we read as a parish community through our book group series, 2016-2019.
