Resources on Anti-Racism



Working towards racial justice is a collective effort that requires individual, organizational and societal change. Individual change starts with education. Our call to action is to educate ourselves through individual learning.


Change leadership towards creating a more inclusive community requires deep personal understanding and reflection. This personal development is needed to build organizational commitment and a culture of inclusion that will positively impact the communities we serve. The resources on this page are a critical foundation for advancing Anti-Racism work.

We must recognize the significant impact of an individual’s race on the way they are treated in the United States. Understanding the importance of Racial Equity starts with learning and education then take actions that promote RACIAL EQUITY.

In addition to formal training offerings through Y-USA and external partners, here is a collection of other resources to support your anti-racism journey.
