What is the Stand Against Racism™?
Groups of any size can take a Stand Against Racism. Any event, private or public, hosted by your community organization/company/school/church where participants may gather to take part in a wide range of locally organized events (trainings, discussion groups, community education, public policy advocacy, etc.) can be a Stand. Stand Against Racism culminates in a commitment or re-commitment to work for racial justice by taking the pledge Against Racism. Learn more about becoming a Participating Site, by clicking here.
