Racial Justice Action Group
The Racial Justice group is dedicated to educating, organizing, and mobilizing Havertown-area residents to raise awareness about racial injustice and work for a community that is equitable for all. Action ideas include: trainings, book clubs, yard signs, "Hate Has No Business Here" signs, film screenings, interracial discussion forums, and community-police relations building, interracial discussion forums, and community police relations building. Some of these actions are already underway, and others are still in the works. More ideas and people committed to taking action are always welcome!
Also, here are some of our accomplishments:
Racial Justice is partnering with the Havertown YMCA to host a 4 part speaker series on race. Anita Friday, Founder of Open Hearts a Path to Racial Healing, kicked off the speaker series on February 27th to a packed room.
On Thursday, April 19, 2018, H-CAN's Krista Malott circulated and spoke at the School District of Haverford Township school board meeting about the Racial Justice Group's report on racial tension in our schools and recommendations to combat it. H-CAN members came out to the school board meeting in force to support.
