Non-Black Latin@/x Resources on Anti-Blackness

After the many killings of Black folks over the past few months, it was disheartening to see the anti-Blackness prevalent within the non-Black Latin@/x community. I created this guide after seeing the lack of solidarity within my non-Black Latin@/x circles. This guide is to be a resource and a conversation starter for my fellow non-Black Latin@/x community to educate and bring to light the anti-Blackness that is prevalent within our community as well as the historic systemic oppression of the Black community. My hope is for the non-Black Latin@/x community to educate ourselves and stand in solidarity with our fellow Black communities. While it's important to educate ourselves in the history of anti-Blackness, I also hope that we are moved to take action against the systems of oppression in the USA.

I created this guide to be a resource for the community, as such if you have any resources/links/articles to share don't hesitate to suggest them via comments! Feel Free to share this among your groups!
