As I mentioned in Episode 25, here are some resources to help guide the many conversations we will all be having in the wake of the murder of George Floyd.
I’m not even sure how to categorize these numerous resources, so I will simply list them. I will update this post as more resources become available or come to my attention. If you have a resource to share, please send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you everyone!
