We are a non-profit organization of moms (and more) committed to listening, learning, growing, and taking action together against racism for the strength and health of our diverse community here in Lake Highlands and Beyond!
This is a SAFE place for reflection and questions, and we commit to encourage and teach one another, respecting that we each come to this space with unique backgrounds, perspectives, experiences, and levels of knowledge about these issues. We will strive to build bridges of LOVE across barriers of race, class, sexual orientation, religion, country of origin, political party, and more. Together we are taking small and BIG steps in the fight against racism by changing Hearts, Homes, and Circles, and Policies.
We have an active Facebook Discussion Group, "Take Action" projects/ teams, a book club, a podcast club, "Teens Against Racism" Group, Playdate Programs for children and families, and an ongoing series of conversations and learning tools for ANYONE wanting to do their part against racism. Welcome to the journey, Peacemakers, Advocates, Allies, and Friends!
