Created by SJPL_Recommends | 12 items
Racial equity is among the most fundamental issues in our national and community dialogues, and issues of race have both historical and current implications in the way we govern at federal, state, and local levels. At the City of San José, we are committed to ensuring that our programs and services work towards equitable opportunities and outcomes for all members of our community. Here’s a list of resources available for free at the San José Public Library to get you started on your own journey of understanding and knowledge of the issues. This list was developed by the City's Office of Racial Equity, compiled from offerings by member organizations from the Government Alliance on Racial Equity, and by our own City staff. More resources are available at the Office of Racial Equity page in the first link below.
