Black Lives Matter Resource Roundup

Explore our Black Lives Matter Resource Roundup, in solidarity with Black communities in the ongoing fight for racial justice. Click through the different resources, bookmark them for later, or share them with your family and friends to help stay informed on issues in the Black Lives Matter movement.

For our friends following us on our social media accounts, this article is an updated version of our Resource Roundup, standing in solidarity with Black communities in the ongoing fight for racial justice. As a publication composed of non-Black people of color, we recognize that there are more qualified and more experienced voices contributing to the conversation - our goal is to platform those individuals, resources, organizations, etc. 

We understand that it is not the responsibility of Black folks to educate us and those in our predominantly Japanese American community. With that in mind, we are continuing the work of becoming more informed - and in turn, using our platform to help our community stay informed - on the issues that have historically affected and continue to affect individuals within Black communities today. 

This list is not comprehensive, but we hope it is a start in our readers’ research, dialogue, and participation. The resources listed address a variety of issues from a variety of perspectives for a variety of populations. Feel free to click through the different resources, bookmark them for later, or share them with your family and friends.

Resource List

Those of us who have been using our downtime under quarantine to read books may also be seeking for recommendations to learn more. We've provided a brief list of books on anti-racism and how slavery has evolved in the United States over time, from neighborhood redlining to mass incarceration.

We've linked the titles to Bookshop, an online resource that supports local bookstores. In the spirit of continuing to support locally-owned bookstores during COVID-19, consider finding your local bookstore through Bookshop's map and giving them the full profit!
