FOR ORGANIZING AND YOUR CLIENTS
There are many Google Docs being created across the country that compile resources for communities, especially marginalized communities. We cannot verify the accuracy or credibility of all of these resources… but some of them are extremely useful. Each one contains dozens if not a hundred links to other resources, so we invite you to check them out.
