Lifespan Resources for Learning About and Responding to Racism

This painful moment in time calls us to focus our learning and reflection on allyship to people of color, understanding white privilege, and reflecting on how we can part of a systemic sea change and solution in our society. 

This is the beginning of a list of resources and programs we will explore on our own and together in the coming months.  Links for discussions will be posted in the e-news, on the website and Facebook page.

Just Mercy – Motion Picture

Warner Brothers, the producers of “Just Mercy” have made the film free on all digital platforms (Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc) , as the message about systemic racism is important, especially now. I encourage you to take the time to watch and join a Zoom discussion of the film with me on Thursday, June 11 at 6:00 PM. Arizona time (6PM PST, 7 MT, 8 CT, 9 PM EST). I will repost the zoom link closer to the date, as well.
