A note from the Racial Justice Collaborative
April 20, 2021
Today, the people of the United States and the world are breathing a sigh of relief after a rare police officer's conviction in the murder of George Floyd. Black Lives Matter took a stand, and collectively, around the world, people joined the movement to say forcefully that Black Lives Matter. Now is the time to continue this forward momentum.
Justice for George Floyd will not return him to his family. But, justice for George Floyd is an important first step in processing America's history of white supremacy. For hundreds of years in this country white supremacy has fostered and perpetuated anti-Black violence.
This is the moment to commit to keeping our eyes open. This is the moment to look deeply into our nation's history of violence, murder, and disregard for Black lives.
Now is the time to examine hearts and minds. Now is the time to change.
MEET THE RACIAL JUSTICE COLLABORATIVE
We are a dynamic Black-led, multi-racial, multi-generational justice organization working to transform the energies of inequality and anti-blackness to advance a just and equitable society that serves all of its people. We are mediators, facilitators, communicators, educators, therapists, and visionaries.
The Racial Justice Collaborative was founded by Diane Wong in the Boston area of Massachusetts, and members hail from all over the US.
Using an interdisciplinary approach, we examine all aspects of race education and conflict to hold space so that all voices engage in dialogue with one another. We cultivate individual and organizational transformation as we guide participants toward equity and healing.

What We Offer
Our mission is to heal our racial divide. Our programs work to transform the ever-present energy of white supremacy that historically and still today permeates the culture, structures and policies of the United States.
Our mission is to guide participants to “sit in the fire” of racial discomfort to process difficult, stuck, and inflamed emotions. We seek to eradicate anti-Black racist beliefs and the myth of white supremacy. We believe that conflict is a gift pointing toward meaningful change and healing and that every voice matters.
