These are resources that Xtracycle team members and our families have found informational and useful in our work towards unlearning racism. This is a living document and resources will be added to it as we find them. More research is being done to gather, read and share resources – apologies for how messy this first pass looks! If you have questions, feedback or input about this list, please email any one of our Xtracycle DE&I Team members (scroll to the bottom of this post for their names and email address).
