When we speak of racial justice, we are not talking about a theoretical framework. We are talking about principles and values that lead and inform the way that we do base building, create policy and monitor policy implementation. We’re talking about building power to dismantle systems of oppression.
2015 was not easy. Violence against our communities- from police brutality and criminalization to underemployment, debt and voter suppression- continued.
At the same time, a mass movement is emerging- in Ohio and across the country- calling for justice, equity and accountability. For us that means organizing centered in building power, rooted in youth leadership development & informed through strategic collaboration.
