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.

Local SpeakOut:

How are you feeling about the escalating violence against Black, Brown, and immigrant people?

Facilitated by Gloria Matlock and Keyedrya Jacobs

The facilitators will create a safe space for all participants to share their experiences, an opportunity for those targeted by racism to share what they need from potential white allies, and an opportunity to talk about the impact on you, personally, of these disturbing and unacceptable racist incidents.
