The Anti-Racism Rapid Response Team is focusing its efforts in 2022

by upping our individual anti-racism education and anti-racism training as a group, while expanding the membership of our texting team.  We will continue to look for a myriad of ways to be better allies across the spectrum of societal encounters and specifically on matters that relate to criminal justice reform.
