Conversations about #BlackLivesMatter and White Anti-Racism

i’m still digesting all of this stuff, but i’m linking to it here so it doesn’t get lost in all of the places… – collection of resources from a talk last week

#blacklivesmatter — Now How Do We Talk About It? – a live google hangout tomorrow night

there are some incredible things happening right now in the face of some really fucked up systemic issues. I’ve been having amazing, raw, and deeply honest conversations with friends from all kinds of backgrounds about recent events and I’m learning more than I can find time to write down. Feeling really grateful to have friends that are willing to be vulnerable and share our experiences with one another.
