We’re excited to announce the launch of a new project called Race Changers! Please head on over there to check it out. Race Changers is a blog that brings together a community of people working towards an anti-racist future, one week at a time.
People often ask, â€œWhat can I do as an individual to make a difference?â€ Race Changers offers a way for any person to join the fight against racism. Each week we post a new assignment that we will all do together, and we discuss what we learned from the experience.
What it will look like
Assignments may be anything from reading a compelling article to initiating a thought-provoking conversation about a particular topic, from writing a journal entry to volunteering with a local campaign. We hope to harness the power of collective action to create the momentum we need to create lasting change.
Make sure that you receive all assignments!

Spread the word
As always, we encourage you to spread the word about our projects to get more people involved in the discussions. With Race Changers, it’s that much more important. Because the success of our work hinges on more and more people getting involved and learning, reflecting, discussing, and acting, we encourage you to bring friends, family members, co-workers and any others you know into this work! Also think about things that you think we should all do. If you have an idea for an assignment, we’d love to hear it! Email your feedback, ideas and suggestions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We are looking forward to making great changes and challenging racism along with all of you.
