OUR 2023 GOALS
In 2023, the Racial Justice Collaborative (RJC) will focus on building community, allies, and accomplices. Our expertise lies in the ability to help groups organically process ethnic and racial differences and tensions. We heal our racial divide by strengthening discussion and relationships and encouraging the expression of emotions.

Given recent controversies, our initial focus in the coming year is to build community between Blacks and Jews.

“If we all just shut [the conversation] down, then we retreat to our little corners of misinformation, and it metastasizes. And the whole point of all of this is to not let it metastasize and to get it out in the air and talk about it." - Jon Stewart

Our next focus will be to explore the depths of anti-Blackness among white women, women of color, as well as Black women. Processing the issues that divide us can lead to creating allies and accomplices among groups.

"An ally thinks the system is merely broken; an accomplice learns to recognize not a broken system, but one operating exactly as it was intended — and works to dismantle its scaffolding, piece by piece." Renee Graham

USE OF FUNDS
The RJC is raising funds to help organize and run community-building events in 2023. Events are online and by donation. The RJC provides tools and knowledge in their workshop events to make all people more resilient in the daily fight against ongoing white supremacy and racial tension. The RJC hosted 12 online events in 2022.

We are also expanding our online video content to educate people about the history of anti-Black racism in America. The RJC provides valuable video content on Youtube that includes carefully sourced historical materials and analysis. Funds will go to better production and editing for higher quality video. RJC will create its first on-demand video course if we raise enough money.

Sign up for the RJC email newsletter or follow RJC on Eventbrite to be notified of future events.
