Anti Racism Resources
The MNDC Steering Committee feels that we have a responsibility to support and serve during this critical moment in history. It also presents an invitation for all of us to work toward dismantling our own racism, and create a more just and peaceful world for everyone. We can only do this work by creating change from within. We hope that these resources provide you with some framework to continue this process that is ongoing and lifelong.
