Racially Just Utah works for Social Justice

28 April 2015

Racially Just Utah is a coalition of organizations, service providers, students, parents, educators, attorneys, advocates, activists, community members, and concerned citizens. Their mission statement is "To positively and proactively ensure racial equity in Utah through policy, accountability, and education." Due to their mission and objectives they started to collaborate with Raise Your Pin which is a group that also advocates for social justice issues. With the help of NeighborWorks Salt Lake in 2015 both groups came up with an annual event known as Race Matters to provide a safe space for residents to share their story.
