How I'm Cultivating My (Antiracist) Garden

Please share yours, too!

Here are some of the ways I’m cultivating my own lil antiracist garden, in no particular order. I’d love if you added to this list! These are all things that are helping me understand what’s going on and how other’s lives are both different and similar to mine. I’m keeping it short on purpose, so it doesn’t look overwhelming. But I’d love to have more stuff in comments (for me, too!).
