External Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Resources

The following list of resources has been curated by our staff and board members as a tool to help inform and guide our work so that we can better serve our families in a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive way. This list is drawn from a variety of sources and is not intended to be a comprehensive list but a grounding place to start. 
We invite our community to join us in using these resources to learn and gain insight into differing opinions, viewpoints, and experiences surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Do you have a resource that helped guide your own learning in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion? We invite you to share with us! Please send your suggested resource to
