I started this community because I am actively engaged in anti-racist work -- along with lots of other types of activist work -- and I feel that people who are dedicated to social justice have to keep in contact with each other. This isn't just a place to share tactics so that we don't have to reinvent the wheel everyday, although this is certainly a forum that will welcome those discussions. This is also a place for individuals to recharge and become motivated while motivating others. If we don't take the time to recharge our batteries (and those of others doing good work) we might get burnt out...it happens so easily, and the work is difficult. Anyway, I'm just here to introduce this community and welcome those interested in progress. Thanks for visiting. Grab a seat.
-Respect the problem. This community is intended to discuss and fight racism. There is a problem with race relations in the world, and there will always be miscommunications. Even if suddenly the world vastly improved in this area spontaniously, we will still need to maintain open communication about it.
-Respect each other. Do not post judgements about other LJ users, even if you disagree with their opinions. Respond intelligently to their opinion, not to them as an individual.
