Social Justice Task Force Resources
WSASP has identified and compiled these resources through the work of school psychologists across the state of Washington. These come from a variety of sources and are intended to help schools and families engage in constructive dialogue about social justice issues in the hopes that we can work together to shift the conversation from hate and violence toward understanding and respect. We will be adding to these resources over time.

Description: This resource is not specific to school psychology or education, but is to inform the foundational understanding of the role of white people in systemic racism. This book is informative primarily for white folks who are not cognizant of the role white people broadly carry in upholding systems of racism and is recommended as a primer on the concept of whiteness as a race in the racist systems built into our society in the US. See the Readers guide for more information prior to reading. This book is available where books are sold, and linked above are discussion questions for educators.
