This page is intended to serve as a resource to people who are committed to anti-racism. Although anti-racism is a lifelong journey, we must start somewhere. Please note that this page includes limited sources and SGA encourages you to conduct your own research as well. Feel free to also look at the additional resources compiled by UofL’s Office of Diversity and Equity.

The beauty of anti-racism is that you don’t have to pretend to be free of racism to be anti-racist. Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it, including in yourself. And it’s the only way forward.

Action on Campus

SGA strongly encourages student's right to protest and take part in our core mission of making student voices heard. We as a student body are stronger and louder together and this is our campus to transform through that voice!
