Anti-racism resources

The following resources have been arranged according to different styles of learning. This list is meant to serve as an initial list of resources to visit in order to guide you into understanding and dismantling internalized and institutional racism. Antiracism is not something that can be checked off a list; nor cured within an individual or an institution through occasional learning. Dismantling racism must be a regular and intentional process that is done throughout the course of our lives. Unlearning racism and becoming antiracist is a lifelong, ongoing process; we encourage you to continue unlearning racism after using these resources. Over time, we will add to the list to address different intersections of racial oppression.

For more trainings and courses on diversity and equity for various groups, see the UC Davis Diversity, Equity and Inclusion pages for Unit and Department Trainings, Diversity Courses, Diversity Awareness Workshop, and other trainings.
