Understanding Race and Privilege

PCS is deeply concerned about the recent loss of lives across the nation and how it reflects the ongoing racial injustices in our country. The following are resources you may find helpful as we all work to develop a sensitivity to racism, developing an anti-racist attitude, and take action whenever possible. We do not have answers, but do have a willingness to learn and take part in change. We hope you find the following resources helpful in your journey.
