Black Lives Matter – Resources


Hello everyone,
 
During this challenging time, it is important that we come together and learn from each other. The following are a collection of excellent resources compiled by the office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at GGU.
 
These also include some self-care resources so as we can all do our best to take care of ourselves and each other. These resources can help us start understanding more about combating racism and bias, both in our communities and ourselves.
 
Further great resources include Instagram accounts as seen below. Also, as a method to connect to one another and hear each other’s voices we have created a page where we can all share. Please share your experiences in order for all of us to hear the voices of our community and amplify the stories that have previously been neglected or gone unheard.
