In Solidarity

Across the country, and here in Marin County, people continue to rise up in response to the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Aubery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others.  We know first-hand the inequities experienced by people of color in all areas of life, including housing, education, employment, healthcare, and the impacts of the criminal justice system. We stand in solidarity with the Movement For Black Lives in saying that Black Lives Matter because we believe that none of us are free from oppression and discrimination until all of us are free. 

The Multicultural Center of Marin celebrates the resilience, wisdom, and inspiration of all members of our diverse community. We value and foster intergenerational leadership for social change and we welcome and embrace the multicultural communities in Marin in their struggle for equality. We recommit ourselves each day to lifting up a multitude of voices in order to bring about a more equitable world where each individual is treated with dignity and respect. Together we will build a community where we are all welcome and able to reach our full potential.

Why is it like this?

Systemic Racism – a corrosive and widespread problem in our society, and we all need to do a better job of confronting it—in our towns, in our neighborhoods, and in ourselves.

Netflix’s 13th offers a deeper dive into systemic racism.

How do we fix it?

– Acknowledge that racism exists.
– Elect leaders and policy makers that don’t support structurally racist policies.
– Get involved in organizations that are actively fighting it.
