Advocates for Racial Justice

Advocates for Racial Justice are people of all races who pledge to help end racism, to bring healing to divided communities, and to come to terms with past and current wrongs in our country.

Advocates for Racial Justice set their own agendas. They decide how they will advocate within their communities. Advocating for racial justice is a lifestyle. It is not adding one more commitment to a full agenda—it is how to think, speak, and act day to day in relationship with the people who fill the space of that agenda.
