Resources for Dismantling Racism


So, you want to take steps towards dismantling racism? Great! You might be wondering where to start. One thing that’s important for white people is to educate ourselves about racism. People of color have been trying teach us for years, but we haven’t been listening. The resources are so plentiful. The problem is with us and the way we’ve ignored these resources.

Here are a few resources to get you started. Each of these are personally recommended by Pastor Erik, and those marked with a “*” are ones he’s read/watched/listened to already.
