Toolkit for Home Visitors: Equity, Race and Cultural 

The MIECHV Team along with many partners has created this toolkit of resources and support materials to keep equity in the forefront of our work. Although this resource is one small step, it is a necessary step towards understanding the scope of what we must contend with and does not exist within a vacuum. If we are to create a more equitable future and live out the mission of public health and human rights, we must dig in our heels and be ready to dedicate our lives to action and remaining accountable to communities we serve. It is our intent to provide you with resources and materials that can assist you in your work.  This ever changing document is not exhaustive, and we welcome additions as we are constantly adapting this document to best support us in our work. 
The following links include resources from an array of experts, authors and disciplines focused on anti-racism, equity, and inclusion. We have organized them into categories to better help you find something specific you might be looking for. In many cases, we are linking to organizations who have curated their own lists of resources, so there may be some repetition. We are grateful to our many partners both local and national who have shared their work with us.  A special thank you to our University of Maryland partners: Dr. David Schultz, Elaina McWilliams, and Anika Aquino of the UMBC Home Visiting Training Center who shared many resources included in this document.
