The streets.mn Anti-Racism Committee — Tim Brackett, Andy Monserud and me — is assembling a library of materials to inform our anti-racism work. The goal is to produce a list of resources that will live on the streets.mn website. We are looking to make this a collaborative process with the streets.mn community.
We are taking a broad view as to the type of content that can be included. At the bottom of this article, you can see a sample of the material that is currently included: books, YouTube videos, podcasts, assessment toolkits and articles. We would like the library to include generally applicable material, as well as works that are specifically relevant to streets.mn’s mission.
If you have suggestions for material to be included, please leave a comment. Or email Francesco Di Caprio at firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions. This call is ongoing, and the Anti-Racism Committee will begin curating the material in early 2022.
