Cooper's Hawk | Inclusion Toolkit – Read, Listen, Watch

Inclusion Toolkit – Read, Listen, Watch

Untitled

We would like to invite you to a virtual library of recommended books, podcasts, and other tools that we hope will continue our education together, in a way that allows us to support one another within the Cooper’s Hawk Community. These suggested readings are an opportunity to pause for reflection and recognition of some of the pain people are feeling as a result of the systemic racism in America that has come to the forefront these past few months. This crisis has affected each one of us in some way, and we are here to listen, ask questions, and start us on a path to understanding. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to our journey in bringing about real change.
