Anti-racist Resources


In 2008, in response to a request from the Women of Color Caucus, the Implementation Collective began sponsoring an annual pre-conference workshop and conference session focused on challenging white women to actively engage in the journey of becoming anti-racist. Despite this ongoing commitment, there is still much work to be done to uproot anti-Blackness and racism within the field of psychology, our organization, and the world at large. This page is here to serve as a resource for AWP members to deepen their ongoing commitment to anti-racist praxis.
