Design and racism, pandemic priorities, getting together — and more UX this week

Your weekly list of curated design resources, brought to you by your friends at the UX Collective.

To stay silent is to be complicit.

  • Get together → Helping your Black and non-Black friends today.
  • White guyde → If you’re a white guy who don’t know what to do.
  • A class divided → 1985 PBS documentary on racism. Still relevant.

The UX Collective newsletter is an ad-free newsletter read by over 136,400 designers every week. Curated by Fabricio Teixeira and Caio Braga.
