This guide is intended to provide resources related to social justice issues important to the Marquette community. 

The goal is to promote works and resources that can help educate yourself and others to be actively anti-racist. This can happen in a variety of ways - through changing required readings for students, supporting authors of color, finding new perspectives and understanding history in order to advocate for a better future for all of us. 

This guide is not exhaustive - there is always room for improvements. If you have suggestions, please let us know in the form below. Thank you!

What's Next?

After you've taken time to read, watch, or listen, please take time to reflect. Then take more time to read, listen, and watch. And then decide what you're doing to do next. Education is only part of the solution - action is required.

Thanks to Professor Sheena Carey (College of Comm) for bringing this tweet to our attention.
