The Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) is a national network of government working to achieve racial equity and advance opportunities for all. They provide free online tools to assist in achieving racial equity goals.
The AnitRacist Table provides valuable information including a 30-day challenge that “will push you to unlearn, reflect, self-educate, and develop awareness of existing oppression, racial beliefs, biases, and privileges.” This is a great resource for those wanting to develop a deeper awareness on the topic, individually and online.
Karen Fleshman of Racy Conversations is a subject matter expert and trainer focusing on the history of systemic racism for deeper understanding and explores how to relate across difference as equals. She points out, as Bobby Seale says, "you don't fight racism with racism. You fight racism with solidarity."
In addition to resources about race, there’s a great guidebook by the League of California Cities called “Transgender in the Workplace." It includes useful definitions many find helpful in developing common language to facilitate productive conversation. It includes employee rights as well as helpful information about working respectfully with the transgender population.
