Equity Resources

Each month, members of our Equity Committee and our extended Tangletown community share resources they've found helpful as they look to expand their understanding of racial justice and equity.  If you're interested in submitting a suggestion to be featured, please email info@tangletown.org.  Sign up for our monthly email newsletter to receive these suggestions on a monthly basis.
