Champaign County Antiracist Coalition regularly advocates for those who have been disenfranchised, whose voices are silenced, and for what is equitable.
C-U Stand Up for Racial Justice is a national network of people doing the work to dismantle systemic racism. We’ve been publishing articles from CU-SURJ each month.
