January 21, 2021

The start of a new year is often a moment when people pause to reflect on the year past, reprioritize what’s important and make goals for the future. Now may be a good time to recommit to your racial justice practice and set an intentional path forward. What will you do to stay committed to racial justice in 2021? What actions will you take? How will you engage in self-care and healing along the way?

Although 2021 may have offered hope for a new beginning, this month so far has brought new challenges as it has continued pre-existing ones for our humanity. It is all the more critical to root ourselves in hope and center racial and gender justice as a priority in our work and lives. We’ve compiled resources on issues we are grappling with — and analysis that has helped us better understand our current moment — as we work for just futures in 2021.
