Here are several resources that I have been collecting from discussions on various listservs that address how white folks must take responsibility for ending racist policies, social norms, and structural and attitudinal biases for our society to transform itself into being truly egalitarian, mutually supportive, and sustainable.
1. A list of many resources on anti-racism for white people, to which I would add the podcast, Scene on Radio, seasons 2 (Seeing White) and 4 (The Land That Has Never Been Yet) of which have been searingly focused on racism and the failure of the United States to ever become the nation that its founders claimed it should be.
2. A checklist for white folks who want to determine whether and how effective their anti-racist consciousness and actions may be.
3. A list of resources from the NYT on the connections between social injustice and climate change.
4. A fantastic brief TED MED talk by Cheryl Holder, an internist from Florida (a colleague of Carissa Caban-Aleman at FIU), who eloquently makes the health arguments that link poverty, racism, and climate change. She is active within the Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health and is a founder of a clinician climate action organization in Florida.
