Justice & Equity Starts With You

 

About

We are dedicated to building an anti-racist, people-powered movement that holds ourselves and the community accountable in creating homes and schools where Black and Brown children and families are thriving.

Organizing & Campaigns

Currently, we are working to shift the way our education system functions. We want an anti-racist, equitable, and just education system that nurtures a sense of belonging and ability to thrive. We want to influence the policies and practices of our schools and to be able to hold them accountable. Organizing helps us build a strong base of people to drive our campaigns forward and reach our goal.

Workshops

In order to be better advocates for our children, we must continue to educate ourselves and understand how systems work. We host various workshops throughout the year to learn and engage with various topics addressing forms of oppression, the education system, community organizing, and system change. Learn more about the programs we offer and what's happening next!

Community Gatherings

Once a month, we host our Community Meets series. We aim to create safe spaces for anti-racist community learning and dialogue. This is an excellent opportunity to connect. We believe that building strong community relationships and networks are essential. This is also a great way to also keep informed and involved in current community efforts within New London. 

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for.
We are the change that we seek."
