For centuries, communities have led countless courageous struggles against racism and the many ways in which it manifests itself in our daily lives. Although many would like to believe that racism no longer exists, we are reclaiming the tradition of anti-racist marches to reveal the ugly truth about the worsening reality of racism both locally and globally. Join us on March 21 to celebrate the dignity, strength, and resilience of our communities!
- End individual and institutional racism, racial violence, and racial profiling!
- Stop the theft of indigenous lands!
- End all racist wars and occupations!
- Stop the deportations now!
- Living wages, healthcare, education, and housing for all!
