I have been collecting links related to Equity and Social Justice in Mathematics. I need to get them out of my Diigo, and into someplace more public where I can use them better.

I am stunned by how many I have. Clearly, this topic is one that mathematics professionals are discussing and writing about. Communicating this to educators who are not aware of the breadth and depth of the conversation is why I am posting these.

*****I know I am missing many! Please add them in the comments. Please!*****
