anti-racist resources

Healthy and Free TN is on an intentional and ongoing journey to disrupt white supremacy and to de-center whiteness within our coalition and in the work we do in our state. We recognize that white supremacy is at the foundation of all of the issues we work against and that our acknowledgment, deep study and unlearning of racism is essential to our ability to do this work and create the communities we all need and deserve. We invite you to join us in this ongoing learning. Below are some resources we've found to be helpful.
