Mission

The Racial Justice Action Center builds the resilience, leadership, unity, and power of marginalized communities in Atlanta, Georgia, and the South in order to fight for and win political and social transformation.

Purpose

We engage in generative, holistic grassroots leadership development, savvy organizing, and strategic policy advocacy rooted in a deep political and historical analysis in order to advance our vision of a transformed society, where justice exists for all people. Inside all of our campaign and leadership development work, we seek to do three things: end criminalization as it impacts our various communities; address the need for our leaders and communities to transform and heal from trauma and oppression; and build the leadership of a multiracial “New Majority” led by women, trans, and gender nonconforming people of color.
