Coping with Racialized Violence and Engaging in Anti-Racist Action
This resource was developed in response to the Black Lives Matters movement, which has promoted action and raised awareness about racism and racialized violence. We acknowledge that racism is not new and impacts all Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and People of Color (BILAPOC). These resources are intended to provide support for BILAPOC students who have experienced racism and racialized violence and to offer learning/un-learning opportunities for any student interested in engaging in anti-racism work.
We feel it is important to acknowledge that the resources offered below may or may not be useful to everyone and in some cases may offer contradictory or confusing guidance. Additionally, while self- guided work is often incredibly powerful, it can also bring up thoughts or feelings that may be helpful to address with additional support. If you are interested in additional support we encourage you to consult with trusted others in your life or to seek professional care. UCS is one of many local options for professional services, we are free and confidential.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of resources, rather an invitation to explore what the University Counseling Service (UCS) community has found especially meaningful in the context of our mission to promote mental wellness. This resource will continue to evolve so please check back.
