Introducing the Antiracism Education and Mobilization Campaign
Since the May 25 killing of George Floyd by white police officers in Minneapolis, thousands of people have taken to the streets to protest racial inequities and systemic oppression that continues to disproportionately impact Black Americans. Across northern New York, communities are seeking ways to engage in the national movement for racial equity and transformational justice. In response, the Adirondack Diversity Initiative (ADI), in partnership with Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA), is launching the ADI’s Antiracism Education and Mobilization Campaign.
The Campaign aims to engage communities in the Adirondacks and the North Country on the issues of race in America and builds on ADI’s mission to develop and promote strategies to help the Adirondack Park become more welcoming and inclusive of all New Yorkers, both visitors and permanent residents. The campaign is designed to take participants from education to action, equipping them with critical knowledge, insight, and resources necessary to begin the difficult work of dismantling systemic racism in our society.
