Organization Description
The Root Social Justice Center is a BIPOC led racial justice organization centering Blackness. The Root prioritizes BIPOC people and their communities by sifting resources to BIPOC for leadership, connection, healing, education and the arts and supports BIPOC led racial justice movement work. The Board is a brand new -BIPOC only Board. Adults must have experience working with Youth and desire to mentor Youth. Youth as equal members. It's almost like we are starting over. Bylaws, structure and everything in between will be discussed and changed to meet the current needs moving forward.
