2. Educate yourself

When you have found your interest group or organization, immerse yourself in its content and recommendations. The document below is intended to “serve as a resource to white people and parents to deepen our anti-racism work”, this includes:

  • Resources for white parents to raise anti-racist children

3. Reach out to legislators

“One way that you can make your voice heard, without the need to organize a complete movement, is to reach out to your representatives and legislators. Elected officials can be reached by phone, letter or email, and informing them of your values and opinions is an important way to ensure that those opinions are represented where they can affect legislation and policy".
