A growing number of books, films and media are focused on equity, systemic racism and related issues. As we continue our learning journey we will update and curate this list. We have featured the authors we've hosted here in Colorado to discuss their work with our members. The others represent a sampling of other titles available. We encourage our members to suggest other helpful resources to include here.
