We stand with Black Lives Matter and the call to end the wounds of racism.  Racism is an illness of ignorance, hatred and trauma that continues to subjugate and demean all people of color.  We recognize this as a challenging task requiring each one of us to be curious, learn and act. The resources here are provided to educate about the implicit biases of racism of which we may be unaware and avenues for individual and collective action.
