STAGE ONE — AWARENESS
Stage one of becoming antiracist is AWARENESS. It is the stage of the process where you become aware of the systemic problems caused and perpetuated by racism. WCS won’t provide too many unique resources for you in this stage, but we do share monthly reading lists so that you may stay informed about the relevant conversations taking place in Black, Indigenous, and Communities of Color every day.
MONTHLY READING LISTS
Each month, this page will upload four new articles - each written by a black, indigenous, person of color (BIPOC) - for you to develop the habit of amplifying their voices. While the information will be updated here on a monthly basis, signing up for the monthly newsletter will have them delivered to your inbox on the first Monday of each month.
