Racial Justice Resource List
This is a list that we, as therapists at Being, have put together and use internally; and which we think could be helpful in contributing to and continuing the discussions around race and justice. It’s intended as a guide to learning, to broaden awareness of resources, and to offer support to those who are committed to dismantling racism and white supremacy and supporting the BIPOC community.
