Anti-Racism & Injustice: A Guide to Resources and Action Steps
We're in VERY difficult times.
As we all try to combat the system of oppression that has resulted in the death of George Floyd and many others, racism has taken a definitive role in daily lives. At urbanwallet, we focus on financial literacy, but we can't sit back and take a passive role.
While researching content, we came across an amazing Instagram post by Kim Julie Hansen with resources and action steps for enforcing CHANGE.
