Resources

"We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes and different dreams."
- President Jimmy Carter

The following resources are a combination of shared information of articles, books, podcast, films, etc. to better assist our community with gaining understanding, insight, knowledge, different perspectives and ally-ship associated with Diversity and Inclusion. A special acknowledgement to Sarah Sophie Flicker and Alyssa Klein for their contribution to this list of resources.
