OUR MISSION

Women Confronting Racism is committed to helping white women do their own work, examining their implicit and explicit biases. We will provide informational programs and real world solutions in order to work towards the eradication of systemic racism. We will join allies in anti-racist efforts to effect dynamic change in our local, state and national communities.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

For centuries Black lives have been, and continue to be, devalued, denied, disrespected, threatened and extinguished with impunity in our country. As a nation, we must dismantle systems of structural racism which marginalize and oppress Black people. Now is the time to join in solidarity around our common
humanity.

Therefore, Women Confronting Racism:

• Unites with those seeking justice for the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many other known and unknown victims of police violence.
• Commits to the long struggle to end unjust policies and systemic racism everywhere.
• Stands with all those who name and denounce police brutality, white supremacy, and language which divides, belittles and intimidates.
• Pledges to address the violence of white privilege and to create a world in which all are treated with dignity and respect.
