Collaborising is in tune with the current racial climate in the U.S. It is our desire to bring people from various racial positions together. We do this by encouraging interactive conversations on race in a safe, yet honest environment. Through panel discussions, symposiums, open mic events, potluck dinners, and small groups we discuss the politics of race and its impact on social harmony.
Our purpose is four-fold:
To bring AWARENESS to the TRUTH that RACE affects ALL PEOPLE--not just PEOPLE OF COLOR.
To demonstrate how EVERY INDIVIDUAL has a ROLE in CHANGING the RACIAL CLIMATE.
To promote the POSITIVE ASPECTS of BLACKNESS.
To encourage INDIVIDUAL EMOTIONAL HEALING from the TRAUMATIC EFFECTS OF RACIAL INJUSTICE.
