OAR’s Racial Equity Action Network

OAR’s community-based Racial Equity Action Network’s primary focus is to create a space to openly discuss race-related subject matter that centers the lives of those impacted by the criminal justice system. This group of committed and passionate volunteers will mobilize with an understanding of historical and current issues impacting our men and women. By empowering and amplifying the voices of those who have been marginalized through systemic racism we aim to challenge racist laws, regulations, programs, policies, and beliefs that dominate our society and culture.

We also aim to pursue partnerships with community members, other advocacy groups, and anti-racism organizations to increase the impact of this work and improve the quality of life for people of color. The Racial Equity Action Network’s ultimate goal is to transition people of color into positions of power in the community, local and state government, the Virginia General Assembly, and other white-dominated organizations to create a shift toward anti-racism across our established infrastructure.

**IMPORTANT – Due to the latest public health and safety concerns regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, all OAR Action Network Meetings until the end of Arpil 2020 will take place virtually via phone or video conferencing instead of having an in-person meeting. Our main priority is to keep our community healthy and thriving and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope everyone stays safe and healthy during this time and if you have any concerns about COVID-19 or looking for more information, please visit the CDC’s official website here.**

Join us on Thursday, April 16th for our monthly Racial Equity Action Network meeting!
