Anti-Racist Resources: How to Take Action Online


by Abbie Fowler

We believe that action facilitates change and we must not be silent on this matter. Learning, talking and protesting are essential for this to happen, as well as making donations to the charities making a difference. Below is a list that we have collated of resources on how to take action online.

Resources:

A document is currently being circulated by Sarah Sophie Flicker (@sarahsophief) and Alyssa Klein (@dj_diabeatic) which is intended to serve as a resource to white people and parents to deepen our anti-racism work. It details many videos, podcasts, programmes, books, articles and other ways from past and present. Link to the document here.
