A Note From Our Founder: How You Can Commit to Anti-Racism & Dismantling White Supremacy
Hello Team TARRA,
This weekend, I stood on a corner, watching the protests take place…breathless with my ignorance, realizing that my inaction and “this isn’t about me” attitude has contributed to the continued oppression of millions of Americans.
We must find a path forward to a world where racism, bigotry and prejudice are eradicated. White people—particularly white women—must not look away any longer. We must confront white supremacy head-on.
Our eyes are open.
We choose to care, to see, to act.
We resist going backwards.
We will become vocal anti-racism activists.
We are committed to using TARRA as a platform for anti-racism and dismantling white supremacy.
Equality starts within each of us. We must continue to push for racial justice and create space for difficult conversations. It’s time to dig deep.
Here are a few small ways to start your new path towards anti-racism. The change starts with you.
