Anti-Racism Guide: Resources for Education and Action

Getting Started: Guides and Learning Communities

To be an ally is to: take on the struggle as your own, stand up, transfer the benefits of your privilege to those who lack it, acknowledge the conversation is not about you, be willing to own your mistakes and de-center yourself, your education is up to you.




Read this: Guide to Allyship. An open source starter guide to help you become a less performative and more effective ally. It is provided as a shareable (open source) resource for you to use, meaning that anyone can contribute.

Learn how to support the creators and contribute resources.

See the Research Guides section on the Anti-Racism Curricula, Syllabi, and Pedagogy: Teach page for resources for students and faculty in higher education. The guides on this page are intended to support actionable allyship.
