Please find below resources on the history of institutionalised racial violence, advice on taking action digitally or physically, and various ways to donate to anti-racist organisations and causes. Following the recent activity we have invested in buying books on the subject which you can access and borrow for free.

Thanks to all those who have made suggestions for this list.

Of course the list and links is by no means exhaustive. We’ll be updating and amending resources as and when.
