FEAP is pleased to share resources we have collected and created to support you in addressing and understanding social injustice.

We have divided these resources into four categories: Education, Action, and Reflection/Self-Care and again by type: articles, videos, podcasts, and events.

Please check back regularly, as we will be adding to and rotating these resources.

EDUCATION

Resources to educate yourself and others.

ACTION

Resources for taking action in support of social justice.

An Invitation to Brave Space
By Mickey ScottBey Jones
Together we will create brave space.
Because there is no such thing as “a safe space”—
We exist in the real world.
We all carry scars and we have all caused wounds.
In this space
We seek to turn down the volume of the outside world,
We amplify voices that fight to be heard elsewhere,
We call each other to more truth and love.
We have the right to start somewhere and continue to grow.
We have the responsibility to examine what we think we know.
We will not be perfect.
This space will not be perfect.
It will not always be what we wish it to be.
But
It will be our brave space together,
and
We will work on it side by side.
