Being human is our bond.

MotherBoard knows the power of diversity. The myriad of backgrounds and experiences that make up the rich fabric of our nation is one of the things that has always made us great.  Equality for ALL people is a founding principle articulated in our Constitution, and yet it is a vision we have not reached.  We are tired of politicians using our differences as a means to divide us instead of celebrating them as one of the strengths of our identity. 

We seek to build families and communities and a future that values different voices, opinions, backgrounds, faiths, and experiences. 

TWW Hampton Roads - Voices for Racial Justice
We must rise, with our vision, our values, our communities, our courage, for racial justice and collective liberation. With the Movement for Black Lives and the Indigenous Nations-led struggle at Standing Rock, the movement for racial justice continues to move us all forward. In this time of mass incarceration, mass deportation, anti-Muslim sentiment, profound economic inequality, and the election of Trump, all of our social justice movements are coming together to build powerful resistance to the death culture. Additionally, people of all backgrounds are becoming active for the first time and looking for direction, as many are horrified by what the election of Trump means for our country. Join us to explore how we can all rise for racial justice and work for collective liberation in these times.
