New RET Resources - February 2019

This month, we are very happy to share an abundance of more than 60 resources across a range of important topics in the equity field. We are pleased to highlight and share resources that center indigenous perspectives and the process of decolonization; discussions of healing from oppression and historical trauma for people of color; tools and resources for white anti-racists; articles on economic, environmental and community justice - and much more. As always, we are grateful to our colleagues for all of their great work, and delighted that we have the opportunity to bring their work to our community's attention.  

Much appreciation for your continued support, feedback and participation with!
