This week has seen two more Black men killed by police officers (Alton Sterling and Philando Castile), and then five police officers were gunned down at a peaceful BlackLivesMatter rally in Dallas. It is hard to find ways forward in the midst of our grief and righteous anger. Harder still in the grip of such feelings to put our hands on useful resources. We’re going to start a list here, and invite you to build on it!
