Anti-Racism Resources

We recognize that it is not enough to be quietly non-racist — we have a responsibility to become vocal, visible anti-racist leaders in our businesses and communities. The team at B Lab U.S. & Canada has compiled ways to step up in your organization and as an individual. If you’d like to submit a resource to be considered for this page, please fill out our submission form.

About Anti-Racism Resources

Compiled by the Team at B Lab U.S. & Canada. While we are not experts, we want to uplift the voices of those who are.

We cannot credibly build an inclusive economic system without addressing the fundamental injustice, inequity and violence that disproportionately impact Black people and other People of Color.

As a community of responsible business leaders, we must get to work to move beyond rhetoric and take meaningful action against racism.

For more information about what we’re doing, you can read B Lab’s statement on anti-racism by Dr. Ellonda L. Williams, B Lab’s Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion and the 2021 update.
