Anti-Racism & Social Justice

CFA members understand racism as systemic and linked to other structures of oppression. Our work to counter racism must aim at structural change and must be intersectional. We connect for co-liberation and we intentionally center anti-racism and social justice — both lens and framework — in all that we do.
