Driving Toward Justice: An Equity Practice Guide
2
Building equitable and anti-racist practices is a lifelong journey and not something that can be done in a silo, such as the workplace or in personal settings alone. Rather, building one's strongest equity muscle requires layers of learning over time, in all aspects of life. This document is maintained by Mission Partners, Benefit LLC, and inspired by Nell Derick Debevoise's Antiracism Practice Tracker. Our hope is that you will borrow from this guide, learn, from it, and most importantly add to it as a way to build a comprehensive set of resources that can build a collective equity muscle in all we do.
