Racial Equality and Justice Resources

The Norton is committed to fighting racism, providing a platform for all voices, and building empathy and community through the arts. As an institution, we are examining the work we can do internally, to better serve and reflect our community, and support and present marginalized voices.

As a step in this ongoing effort, we have compiled a guide to both local and national resources to engage with, learn from, and support.
