(Always Under Construction! :D)

At Unirondack we believe in educating ourselves and then moving from education to action in the pursuit of racial justice. As a predominantly white organization, however, we understand that our place is not to lead, but to follow and listen to BIPOC leadership and take action within our own circles at the direction of those leaders and voices. One of many ways we have an opportunity to do this is to use our platform as an organization with a website that generates traffic is to offer to you the following voices and resources that you can draw from for your own education and action.

Note: When offering links to other websites we have tried to find sources that will support the original creators of the content rather than a third party seller, especially larger corporations such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, or Spotify. If you have resources we can add or if you have improvements on our research, let us know! If you’re looking for ways to support Black-owned book sellers you can find more resources HERE.
