Plan for All: A Resource List

Plan for All is a student committee in DCRP that works on issues of equity, inclusivity, diversity, and social justice. This year, we hope to push for greater inclusion of these topics in the classroom, and to learn from the existing wisdom around campus. We also hope to expand these conversations into a year-long learning series of trainings that will help us better integrate diversity, oppression, and social justice analyses into the DCRP experience.

We recently hosted a student panel to discuss and brainstorm resources on campus relating to equity, diversity and social justice. Below is a the resource list that we created during the session. We hope that it will prove to be a useful tool for students here at DCRP, and for anyone else in the wider UNC community interested in these issues.
