Anti-racism resources

As an institution, we’re committed to confronting persistent issues to build a foundation for progress. And for many of our staff, from those on senior leadership to part-time employees, this process started with self-education. Here is a sampling of some of the key books, films, podcasts, influencers and organizations that Mint staff have found enlightening as we endeavor to change our perspective and effect change.
