Resources

While HypheNation seeks to be a resource for learning and education on many aspects of socio-racial identity and conversation, it is a mission far to great to undertake on our own. Our goal is to give readers the most comprehensive access to resources that help them develop all parts of themselves. An asterisk indicates a partnership or endorsement of a resource; otherwise, it is provided here for informational purposes only. If you have an organization or website that should be featured as a resource here, please use the contact form to inform us.

NYC Area (available nationwide)

For multi-racial families (biological and through adoption/fostering)

*HypheNation hosts classes and workshops for multiracial families, targeting the children’s identity development but forming a safe space for adults to explore the way their own race and culture affects their lives and familial interactions, and gain resources for being their child’s best support. A group workshop schedule will be listed soon. If you would like a one-on-one workshop with your family, please contact us directly. If you are outside of the NYC area and are interested in sponsoring a workshop in your area, please contact us. Please email classes at swirl-magazine dot com for more information, and check back regularly.
