Racial Justice

These groups work to challenge racial injustice and inequality through campaigning, advocacy and support. They work toward a world where a person is not discriminated on because of the place they were born, the way they look, or the culture(s) they identify with.

Groups promote inclusion and acceptance of cultures, and work to combat racism and discrimination in all forms. They also work to support those affected by racial discrimination, and to offer solidarity and empowerment to these individuals and communities so they can move toward a position of not being discriminated against.

Their work challenges white supremacy and racism seen in public attitudes, media narratives, government policies and manifesting in fascism and hate crime.
