Antiracism is more than simply not being racist. This list is intended to provide general information about anti-oppression, racism, privilege, and inclusion, especially in terms of higher education in the STEM fields as well as information and resources for the social justice issues key to current dialogues within the University of Iowa community and beyond. This list is by no means an exhaustive list of antiracism resources nor does it capture all of the many facets of the larger conversations about the issues listed here. This list serves as an introduction to these issues and as a starting place for finding information from a variety of sources.
Definition: Anti-racism can be defined as some form of focused and sustained action, which includes inter-cultural, inter-faith, multi-lingual and inter-abled (i.e. differently abled) communities with the intent to change a system or an institutional policy, practice, or procedure which has racist effects.
