Fighting Anti-Blackness Resource List

To view our statement in solidarity with Black activists, leaders, colleagues, and friends, please click here.


This resource list, compiled by HarvardWIT+, covers some of the ways in which non-black folks can support the current #BlackLivesMatter movement against police brutality and state violence. We include resources from the BLM movement (including bail funds and other ways to support or donate), reading lists and videos on systemic racism and anti-blackness, and information on how tech communities can commit to address anti-blackness. We have also included a short list of organizations in our local community you can support, as well as resources created for and by Harvard.

We acknowledge that this list is not comprehensive and look forward to adding more resources as a living document. Please email us at if you have any additions or questions.
