ANTI RACISM EDUCATION
At G.I.F.T. we know that there are a lot of people looking to educate themselves and their peers on the reality of systemic racism in America, and specifically in Kansas City. We have begun to cultivate this list educational resource on Redlining, Policing, and the existence of systemic racism in general. Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours, we hope you will take some time to check out some of the these resources and pass them along.
