Crucial Anti-Racism Resources to Help Us Listen & Learn

Tacos & Tequila


It’s time to engage in uncomfortable conversations, sign petitions, dig into educational resources on racial injustice and donate to anti-racism efforts — because we, like you, are continuously striving to listen, learn and take action. That’s why we’ve curated a list of articles and books to read, podcasts to subscribe to, films and TV series to watch, and activists to follow to help us better educate ourselves and those around us. Together, let’s be a part of the solution and finally make an impact.
