Mission:

To transform our community by providing engaging and challenging anti-racist education that centers the lived experiences of people of color. 

vision: 

We envision a community that pushes no-one to the margins, celebrates diversity, and works together for racial and social justice. 

what we do: 

We fulfill our mission through workshops, special events, cultural projects, and rapid response to racial and social injustice. 

It all started when…

In 2016, R.A.C.E. Matters formed in response to the killing of unarmed black men by law enforcement. A group of like-minded people began to meet, seeing a need for local engagement around racial and social justice. The grassroots organization now presents anti-racism workshops, special events, and cultural projects.
