Anti-Racist Resources for Your Youth Group

  160 views

As the events in the US over the past few weeks have brought to light, once again, the ways in which we are failing our black brothers and sisters we, the staff of Youth Unlimited, are heartbroken. We do not want to turn away from this pain, but instead, we would like to do a better job of pointing you towards resources to use with your Youth Group or during your SERVE experiences. 

The reality is that we are a staff of white individuals who are nowhere near experts on the topic of anti-racism. So we will not be writing think pieces or attempting to develop resources of our own. But instead, we have compiled a list of organizations, curriculum, media, and other materials that may help you bring this conversation to the surface with your teenagers.
