Anti-Racism Resources

At NYFC, we believe that Black Lives Matter.

We have compiled these anti-racist resources to support BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color) youth and adults and to educate non-BIPOC individuals on how they can practice anti-racism in their everyday lives.

Whether you are new to social justice issues, or have been involved for years and are simply looking to learn more, we hope these resources and ideas are valuable to you.

While we are not experts in this field, we are passionate about this work. Please help us grow this list of credible resources by providing feedback and additional suggestions. We are excited to hear from you so that we can learn and serve as best we can.
