Racial Justice Resources

We created this page a a place as a place to share links to resources/readings/videos for people interested in racial justice.
Many of these could be used as a conversation starter for a Stand Against Racism event.
If you have a suggestion of something to add to this page, contact our Stand Against Racism Coordinator, Angel Redmond, at angel.redmond@ywcaofavl.org.
