Foundation Launches Online Racial Equity Resource Guide

As part of its America Healing initiative, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation launched an online platform that provides access to extensive learning materials, tools, and data on racial inequities, and collective insights on the process of fostering racial equity in communities. The website allows users to customize their own package of materials on specific topics that fit the needs of an individual or organization. Users can start with a pre-made toolkit or build a new one by filtering by areas of focus, issue areas, or material type.  http://www.racialequityresourceguide.org/index.cfm
