This guide is intended to help members of the Los Angeles Valley Colleges community and beyond learn more about the issues surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement and 2020 protests. This is a living document and will change and grow over time. We encourage you to contact us with feedback and to recommend resources to add to the guide.
"To be antiracist is a radical choice in the face of this history, requiring a radical reorientation of our consciousness" and that "being an antiracist requires persistent self-awareness, constant self-criticism, and regular self-examination." Ibram X Kendi
This guide is inspired by and adapted from many other guides, especially the Anti-Racism & Black Lives Matter Resources guide at Claremont College Library, Anti Oppression guide at SImmons University, and the Anti-Racism Anti-Opression guide at the University of Victoria. Thank you to all the authors for sharing their work.
