This section offers resources for engaging in anti-racism work, practicing solidarity, and self care for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). These resources are largely provided by the UCSF Office for Diversity and Outreach, as well as additional resources for health care providers. The COVID-19 pandemic uprooted our lives and exposed the heavy impact on minority communities. On top of this we have the compounded trauma from individual and institutional racism in the U.S. This is a time for everyone, regardless of social, racial, and ethnic identity, to become aware of the systemic racism in our institutions and society, and do our part to remedy it. Here we provide resources to support your well-being, bolster you when you are targeted and discriminated against, and stand as active allies and partners during this challenging time.
