What began one year ago as a celebration of the 8th of August via a weeklong blog series has morphed into a movement. The purpose of the #RootCauseRacism movement is to partner with people around the globe to learn and share meaningful ways we will dismantle structural racism through the application of continuous improvement. To quote Karyn Ross, one of the collaborators and supporters of #RootCauseRacism, founder of the Love and Kindness Project Foundation and The New School for Kind Leaders,
“Each of us can be an active creator of the world as it can be: a world free of systemic racism and racial injustice.”
Please join us for a week of reflection, awareness, and action, beginning today, by visiting the blog that sparked the first series and the movement:
One Small Thing: Sharing Our Visions and Voices to #RootCauseRacism - https://www.rootcauseracism.com/post/one-small-thing-sharing-our-visions-and-voices-to-rootcauseracism
Other ways to engage with us throughout the week include:
