Contained in this section is a collection of resources to provide support, professional and personal growth for the reader. Nothing in the section is a substitute for real live relationships that provide the fertile soil in which growth, challenge, and connection can occur. The friendships and collegial relationships that the writers of this section have been privileged to enjoy over the past years have grown us into the people we are. We would encourage you to push yourself to be in regular dialogue with others on issues of racism and social justice. As Audre Lorde said “Your silence will not protect you” nor will it make the world a better, safer, or more just place for the generations that come after.
