Racism Unveiled

Taxonomy Header ImageTaxonomy Header Image
Racism. A word that stings. A force that bites. With every step we take toward some form of equity, the deep roots of systemic racism hold us back, stagnating well-intentioned progress. Whether we put our justice, public health, education or housing systems under a microscope, racism is so entwined in the workings of our society that some folks believe it no longer exists at all. Racism Unveiled is a digital storytelling project that aims to call out racism and to highlight how we can pull up this weed once and for all. This work is generously funded by a grant from the Otto Bremer Trust.
