In Place of the Usual Energy Institute Blog

June 8, 2020

There is no Energy Institute blog this week. Instead, here at the Energy Institute we have taken the time to learn more about the impact of systemic racism on the black community in the U.S., as well as to honor the memories of

George Floyd

Breonna Taylor

Ahmaud Arbery

Sandra Bland

Michael Brown

Eric Garner

Trayvon Martin

…and too many others who have been killed or harmed by the racism that persists in this country and continues to divide our society.

Here are some resources we have found useful:

“Anti-racism resources”

Barack Obama, “How to Make this Moment the Turning Point for Real Change”

New York Times, “The 1619 Project”

Ta-Nehisi Coates, “The Case for Reparations”

Trevor Noah, George Floyd, Minneapolis Protests, Ahmaud Arbery & Amy Cooper

Christopher Wink, “To white organizational leaders, silence is violence: Here’s what you should do now”

We welcome your suggested resources.
