racial justice

resources

A core pillar of our mission at Arise! is to support diverse people groups in the Midwest and build a more equitable community where everyone is valued as equals. Our area is not known for taking on these challenging conversations, but together, we must change that. We must have these discussions, as tricky and uncomfortable as they can be, and we must confront the injustices that exist in our societal systems.

Below are resources to educate yourself and others on how to discuss systemic racism, diversity and inclusion, and social injustice.
