Crossroads Antiracism Organizing & Training works to dismantle systemic racism and build antiracist multicultural diversity within institutions and communities. They train institutional transformation teams guided by the following principles:
- The work of Crossroads is based upon a systemic analysis of racism and its individual, institutional and cultural manifestations;
- Crossroads seeks to be accountable in its work to those who share a common analysis of racism, and especially to communities of color;
- Crossroads understands its antiracism work to be part of a national and global movement for racial justice and social equality;
- Crossroads recognizes that resistance to racism also requires resistance to all other forms of social inequality and oppression.
SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals organizing White people for racial justice. Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ moves White people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability. Supporting and collaborating with local and national racial justice organizing efforts, SURJ provides a space to build relationships, skills and political analysis to act for change.
The Portland, Oregon chapter of SURJ includes a new “Interfaith Action Group,” which provides training and support to faith communities engaging in racial justice.
