Racial Justice Resources

The Alumni Board's Diversity and Inclusion Committee, in partnership with the Alumni Programs and Annual Fund office, has compiled the information found here to support anti-racism efforts at Reed and in the broader alumni community. The fight for racial justice affects us all, and we are thankful for the leadership of so many Reedies who have long been engaged in anti-racism work. You are our greatest asset for this page, and we want to continue learning from your expertise. If you have suggestions, ideas, resources, insights, feedback, or other contributions to make regarding this page, please email alumni@reed.edu.
