RACIAL JUSTICE RISING
MASS SLAVERY APOLOGY
RACIAL JUSTICE RISING
is a small racial justice group based in Franklin County, Massachusetts.
We used to be known as Mass Slavery Apology, and that is still the name of the project that started our work, our statement of apology for slavery and commitment to restorative action.
We strive to bring everyone into the antiracism movement by sharing information about racism and white privilege, developing relationships and building collaborations with other racial justice groups and antiracist individuals locally, regionally and nationally.
Please join us for a free presentation and discussion
