Open Right

We are deeply saddened by recent events, and stand in solidarity with people of colour across the world. In our conversations about what is happening in the US, we must also remember to acknowledge the mistreatment of Indigenous people and injustice in Australia.

We can all do better by educating ourselves and supporting change however we can. Consider adding these books to your reading list, follow the authors online to show your support and deepen your understanding by listening.
