RARC started as an opportunity for a young woman to express her passions of social justice, equity and justice for her community and other existing communities. As a Black/Nigerian-American and 1st Generation woman who was born and raised in Seattle, WA, not seeing people that look like her, not having the open conversations of equity until later in life, RARC gives people, groups, and communities the opportunity to have transparent, open and honest discussions that are absolutely necessary about equity.
With this equity work, one has to not only understand the intersecting identities of people and communities, but also the struggles, the challenges and the experiences that these communities have. From talking about how to be anti-racist, learning about intersectionality, privilege, the importance of self-care especially in this equity work and other topics, RARC supports and challenges people to truly understand how they can be effective accomplices/co-conspirators. Why do I use the word "accomplice" and "co-conspirator" instead of "ally"? I do that because being an ally, although great, is keeping it safe. Being an accomplice, you are taking the risk and you are willing to take the next step in your equity journey and supporting the communities. If one is truly committed in this equity work, one has to open their minds and hearts, always take risk and action in order to cultivate change in our world.
