Bias. Racism. Awareness. Equity. Just a few of the many powerful words heard in recent conversations around the globe following weeks of protests and unrest that clearly demonstrate we all have work to do. These conversations can be difficult, even painful at times, but very necessary. As a Community, our role in these conversations is to create a respectful environment, encourage growth, and empower each individual by sharing resources for learning and discovery.
In 2016 Community Manager Biray Seitz featured a few Black History Month that were available in Commons. This list has grown over the years, and there’s room for more! Here's a more current collection.
Conversations, like this one, have been sprinkled in our community! One in particular influenced a direct change in our Community as you know it! But there’s room for more change and a need for more educational material to help counter racism and hate.
Call To Action
We’re each responsible for owning change. Let’s start a conversation and collect the best resources and strategies for creating change and share them with one another.
If you know of a resource that can be incorporated into a Canvas course, share it in the thread below! We’d love to have so many we need to manage a document to sort them all.
If you own a Canvas resource, share it to Commons and then cross-post as a comment below.
