May 7, 2021 Version 2.5

Hi our friends and allies,

What we’ve done is organized these resources to make it easier for you.

Level 1 is where I suggest you start. A basic overview about some of the issues, facts, and concepts. Things that are short, easy to access, and less intense.

Level 2 is a bit more challenging, takes a bit more time, but goes deeper.

Level 3 these resources are a bit more intense and take more time. A deeper understanding of both the issues and the ongoing emotional costs of systemic racism.

Additional Resources: we’ve included these to give you tools to further deepen your knowledge & education on things.

Training Resources: at the end of this document we’ve included a number of resources to help you go even deeper. The individuals providing this training are EBC members / people I know personally. The EBC may also have offerings from time to time. This is a great way to learn more from people doing this work and have the opportunity to ask questions.

Thanks again for being an ally and remember that this journey is going to take some courage. You may not always know what to say and do; and your best intentions may be met with pain, anger, and hostility. Please know any negativity coming towards you may not be personal or mean that you’ve really screwed up. Historically, those of us who are BIPOC have had to suck it up for a long time and the present climate has a lot of us very triggered.

Also, the dynamic that happens with most couples can happen here too: Issues haven’t been addressed. You make it safe to talk. EVERYTHING tends to come out with all the pent up pressure and emotion that couldn’t come out in the past. Most of us have experienced this in our relationships.

This is where your toughness & courage as an ally really needs to show up. Just like with your partner, if you’re willing to hang in there, be curious, and listen with an open heart & mind the intensity tends to decrease as the other person feels heard, understood, and validated.

Remember to look for ways to put your new knowledge into practice. Also, let’s keep the conversation going on the EBC Facebook page. Let everyone know what you did, how it felt, and how it worked out, along with other general thoughts. Once again thanks for being in the trenches with us.

Thank you,

The EBC Harmonizing Diversity And Inclusion Action Group
