Grassroots Law Project

White supremacy, bigotry, greed, and corruption are no doubt at the center of police brutality and mass incarceration, but do not confuse the presence of these evils with simplicity. These systems are complex, deeply entrenched, and took hundreds of years and millions of laws and policies to create. Dismantling them, and replacing them with something imaginative and redemptive will be the work of our lives. But together, step by step, we can do this.  VOLUNTEER  DONATE

Essential Reading

How to Be an Antiracist

“What’s the problem with being ‘Not Racist’? it is a claim that signifies neutrality: ‘I am not a racist, but neither am I aggressively against racism’ But there is no neutrality in the racism struggle. … One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an antiracist. There is no in-between safe space of ‘not racist.’ The claim of ‘not racist’ neutrality is a mask for racism.” – Ibram X. Kendi I Author of How to be Antiracist
