Racial Equity

Racial Equity

Find your local Black Lives Matter chapter and join. Black Lives Matter has grown these last few years from a fledgling protest organization to a ubiquitous movement with political aspirations. But to keep the momentum going, the organization is dependent upon strong, local support. By connecting with a local chapter, you can play an integral role in helping to organize future actions, campaigns, and demonstrations.

Become a mentor through Mentor.org, a national mentoring organization that works to close both the achievement and mentoring gap here in United States. Mentor.org will provide you with extensive training and resources, so that you can seamlessly transition into the role of a mentor for a kid in need.

Do you want to help organize more white people for the cause of racial equity? Then join SURJ, an organization that heeded the Black Lives Matter’s call for more white people to organize around anti-racism. SURJ is looking for support in all kinds of areas: social media, fundraising, organizing, training facilitation, and graphic design.

Racial Equity

description
Black lives continue to be systematically discriminated against and unjustly targeted. Today, in 2017, Black people are two and a half times more likely to be shot and killed by a police officer, and they are five times more likely to be incarcerated when booked with a crime. In this unjust and racist society, we must come together and fight against the unacceptable status quo. We must champion their humanity and highlight the many contributions they make to our society and culture. We must work tirelessly to close the educational achievement gap. And, above all, we must do better!

Goal

To end racial discrimination and racial profiling in the United States.
