Racial Justice

The Racial Justice Huddle recognizes that systemic racism still exists in every aspect of American society and that white supremacy is infused into the foundation of this country. Racism is perpetuated through white privilege, the white standard, and unequal treatment of people of color in the educational, criminal justice, and other core institutions.  Our mission is to educate ourselves, ask ourselves the hard questions about our history and current society, and to act to eradicate racism and to come together to create a more just future for all.
