Anti-Racism Resources

At the Learning Disabilities Association of WNY we have prided ourselves as being a safe and inclusive space for the people we serve, their families, and the community. We believe that racism, hatred, and inequality have no place in our world. Every person has the right to feel safe, seen and heard. It is with compassion and shared responsibility that we will continue to listen, to learn, and improve ourselves to do better for our community. We cannot allow systemic racism to go unnamed or unchallenged. Above all, we cannot turn away and We stand with You in solidarity. Black Lives Matter.


Please take the time to review the many resources listed below, educate yourself, and share with others about the absolute necessity to become an anti-racist world. 


The document below compiled by Sarah Sophie Flicker and Alyssa Klein in May 2020, is intended to serve as a resource to white people and parents to deepen our anti-racism work. If you haven’t engaged in anti-racism work in the past, start now. Feel free to circulate this document on social media and with your friends, family, and colleagues.
