I made this spreadsheet in order to arrange some of the anti-racism resources circulating in the last week into a plan that can help fellow white people/non-Black POC begin to maintain a steady education on anti-racism in their day-to-day lives. I started to do this for my own benefit before realising others may find this format helpful too. This is designed to be the start of a sustained process of listening, reading, educating and looking inwards, and is by no means exhaustive. A lot of the resources in this spreadsheet have been taken from Sarah Sophie Flicker and Alyssa Klein's anti-racism resources google doc, which is linked here. Many of the UK-focused articles are sourced from Bustle UK's brilliant list, which I have linked to at the end of the spreadsheet, along with further resources. Please feel free to share this document far and wide. I hope people find it to be a helpful jumping-off point.
