Black History Month

Black Lives Matter today and every day. Beginning February 1st through March 1st, we celebrate Black History Month. Within the last year, we have been learning and unlearning the many ways in which oppressive systemic racism still exists in the United States. Fact to know: The United States is traditionally known as Turtle Island to the Indigenous Peoples of North America and Central America.

Not only have we been learning, but we have also been reflecting on our own individual biases. This work is lifelong and there is still so much to do. As an organization, we will be sharing stories and resources in hope to inspire you to dig deeper this month to dismantle systems of oppression on Black, Indigenous and People of Color.

To begin, we encourage you to check out this list of resources (books, movies, podcasts, etc.) by BIPOC voices. Follow us along on Instagram and Facebook where we will share more information and resources throughout Black History Month.
