Faith and Anti-Racism

What follows isn’t an exhaustive list but we have compiled a few of each, so as to allow us to focus our energies. We will be adding more resources (including from additional voices and perspectives of color) in the coming weeks but we will start here.

Here are some more extensive compilations of resources: more broadly, “Engage and Respond” from the Evangelical Covenant Church and “Scaffolded Anti-Racist Resources”; and then more specifically, “Anti-Racism Resources for Asian Americans.”
