Like many of us, I have been deeply saddened and outraged at the social injustice on display in my country and across the globe. I am part of an anti-racist study group and wanted to share some resources that I find important in my current reading, that aid in my ability to be more self-aware and take constructive action. Change is a developmental process.

The 1st chart —Who do I want to be during Covid 19 — is credited as anonymous, this version comes from  https://qorf.org.au/who-do-i-want-to-be-during-covid-19/

The 2nd chart — Becoming an anti-racist — is an adaptation of the first, and is credited as “adapted by Andrew M. Ibrahim MD, MSc from ‘Who Do I Want to Be During COVID-19’ chart (original author unknown) with some ideas pulled from Ibram X. Kendi’s work.”

The resource page where you can find the 2nd chart is written by Dorlee Michaeli, MBA, LCSW at:  https://www.socialwork.career/2020/06/anti-racism-resources-for-social-workers-and-therapists.html 

Well worth a look and good to take your time. She has done a very admirable job of compiling anti-racism reading lists, articles, organizations, webinars, videos, Ted talks, tool kits and more.
