Yesterday we proudly launched a new workshop titled “Rooting out Racism: How to get started at your organization,” led by Dialogue on Race Louisiana CEO Maxine Crump.
As an introductory workshop about how to identify the racist policies, bylaws and practices at your association that passively and actively allow inequities to continue, this conversation was a starting point for those unsure of where to begin.
“We have the ability, the access, the momentum, the reason and will benefit from being a part of doing what we can do where we are at the institutional level, because that’s the power to bring about change,” Crump said during the workshop. “And now’s the time, we can make that shift to where our country operates the way it was designed to operate in our founding document. We can do it; it doesn’t matter whether it’s our fault. What matters is it’s here, and what matters is what kind of country do we want, what kind of society, what kind of communities, what kind of organization? We can do this.”
This quote is but a glimpse into the powerful and touching words Crump shared during her conversation with AssociationSuccess.org content manager Chelsea Brasted.
