This guide provides a range of resources available for you to learn more about race, racism, justice, and the rule of law. Some documents relate to the recent deaths of Black men and women in encounters with police, and the protests that followed those deaths. Other documents discuss this country’s racial past and how that past influences current events. Many of the resources show what actions law firms, educational institutions, and businesses can take to respond to racism or to have meaningful conversations at work about race. Other documents push individuals to privately question their views and beliefs on race or suggest ways individuals can confront systemic racism when they see it.
