Racial justice requires more than our words. It demands radical redistribution and restructuring. It means decentering whiteness and white fragility. It is decolonizing our institutions and building systems of repair that shift the material, economic and mental conditions of us all.
This work includes CAG – not just in language, but in deed, action and structure. This work is urgent, it is ongoing, and it is the only way forward.
We encourage you to take action however you can: money, time, energy, attention. We will be doing the same.
