Anti-Racism Resources

Resource List for Anti-Racist Work

This is a running document of recommended resources from the Office of Equity and Inclusion at Lewis & Clark College. This list is not exhaustive nor encompasses all the issues facing our community and the world. This is meant to be a starting point. Maybe you are taking your first step into intentional anti-racist work or maybe you have been doing this work for a while but are looking for more. Please dive in: read, discuss, engage, grow, and evolve. When we know better, we do better. These resources are here for you to keep doing better and therefore contribute to and create a more just anti-racist world. As an educational institution we hope you are invested in life-long learning as this journey is continuous.

If you are interested in having a one on one conversation with a member of the Office of Equity and Inclusion to discuss more actions you can take, feedback you have, or to hold space for any feeling coming up around these topics please find our office hours and book an appointment here. This document is a compilation of other people’s voices and labor, we appreciate all stakeholders who contributed. If you have a resource you think should be added to this list please email This work is ongoing so all resources are welcome.
