Racial Justice Resources and Allyship Actions

Petitions to sign, organizations to contact, books to read, and more, curated by the Community & Inclusion team.

The Yale School of Management community has been discussing intensively  how we can each respond to the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery and contribute to the fight against systemic racism and police brutality. Below is a list of resources that are well regarded in the diversity and inclusion field and that may help you determine how to act on your own beliefs and conscience.
