Racial Justice Resources

Racism has no place in our classrooms and communities. We stand with the Black community to call out racial injustice and to work together to find solutions that lift us all up. 

Wisconsin Literacy and its Health Literacy division work closely with local member agencies statewide and students from many different races and ethnicities, to provide compassionate education and services that benefit all.

We firmly believe that stories connect us and learning from others’ stories builds stronger relationships with our families, neighbors, community and the world.

Here are some resources that can help you do that. 


  • “1619” is a New York Times audio series, hosted by Nikole Hannah-Jones, that examines the long shadow of American slavery.

  • Hosted by journalists of color, this NPR podcast tackles the subject of race head-on.
