LISTENING: Looking for a podcast to listen to while traveling or on break? Check out “Radio Free CSU,” CFA’s podcast. Our inaugural series examines our union’s commitment to Anti-Racism and Social Justice Transformation work, and in each episode, host Audrena Redmond talks with a CFA leader about one of the guiding principles of that work.

Here are links to episodes available:

  • Episode 1: Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere
  • Episode 2: We intentionally center Anti-Racism as part of our mission
  • Episode 3: We acknowledge that even we in CFA are part of the problem of racism
  • Episode 4: We acknowledge that WE can be part of the solution by being intentionally committed to addressing it (racism).

All episodes also are available on iTunes.

SUMMER READING: With summer months upon us, it’s also a great time to catch up on reading. CFA has a compiled a list of online resources and books for those who want to delve more deeply into learning about anti-racism and social justice.
