Reflective Questions to ask yourself and your organization

  • What can I do to support BIPOC in my organization?
  • How can I use anti-racist knowledge to change and progress conversations with friends, family, colleagues and peers?
  • How impactful is individual ‘unlearning’?
  • Will working within the system be enough or should we change the system? 
  • If we change the system, what does the new system look like and how do we institute and keep the energy through the messy parts of change?
  • What organizations are going beyond performative allyship - and making real change?
