Resources Addressing Racism and Police Brutality

The UIS Coalition Builders and others at UIS curated this resource page to help us learn how to address racism and police brutality. The extensive list of resoures includes educational and curricula resources, local and national organizations, courses at UIS that address racism, and non-profit funds to support.

The Heartland Coalition

We hosted a trainer of the trainer for three days, in May 2019, in coalition with the University of Iowa and the Medical College of Wisconsin. Our three schools are now named the “Heartland Coalition” and have agreed to work closely together, sharing resources.

“Doing the heart work in the Heartland.”
