Resources for black families

Talking about race, racism, and injustice are not new topics for black families.  Often, dealing with the trauma from these experiences can be overwhelming to navigate, especially if you are witnessing others respond, judge, remain silent, focus on the wrong things, or deny. This is not an exhaustive list of resources, but the message that the trauma, anger, anxiety, etc., that you are feeling is valued and heard.
