UPCOMOMING EVENTS

Sturday November 4, 8am - 12pm

This years race is a virtual run, which means no meet up. You can run from whoever you are!! The Race Against Racism or The Skunk Run has a two-fold purpose:
To highlight, applaud, and inspire the people who are doing the difficult work of racial healing, and social justice, to keep going.

To add our chapter of healing to the story of Tulsa’s Race Massacre of 1921. We pay respects to our history and honor the lives that were lost during the massacre that destroyed the most affluent African American community in the United States due to racism.

In addition to a 5K that weaves through the historic Greenwood district, attendees will hear from local community leaders who share the history of the 1921 Race Massacre, and speak to the resilience of the Greenwood Community.

We partner with the Tulsa Police Department who will share their efforts to heal Tulsa through community policing. Local agencies and community organizations who are committed to racial reconciliation in our city give out information about how you can get involved in this important and great work. The most important piece in this event is YOU, the community! Be a part of making #OneTulsa a reality!

 

August 10, 11:00 am, we’ll meet at Andrews Park for our Skunk Dog Cookout. We refuse to let the noise of division segregate us. We want all the Norman people to join us and celebrate our community.

We partner with the Norman Police Department and Sgt. Jeff Casillas will speak about their efforts to unite Norman through community policing.

In addition, attendees will hear about inspiring work from local community leaders.

The most important piece in this event is YOU, the community! Be a part of making the difference we need!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

We understand that racism is such a harsh and polarizing topic that most people choose not to address it. However, racism has been a problem in this nation since before its foundation, and this is why no one in the United States is immune to its effects.

Tulsa, OK, is the place where racism had its deadliest attack, the 1921 Race Massacre. We believe that because of this history, Oklahoma is the place that will spark the change and create a model to end racism in America

We understand it takes many different approaches to defeat racism. No single person or organization has all the answers, time, or the human power to do all the work by themselves.

It takes us all

The word ‘equality’ shows up too much in our founding documents for anyone to pretend it’s not the American way.

A LASTING JOURNEY

#racismstinks is maturing and coming to understand that our role in the efforts to eradicate racism out of the systems and institutions that are supposed to make our country great for all people is not one of “follow us as we lead,” but “join hands with us as we all cross this uncharted road.”

We plan on expanding our reach to other highly affected areas of the country with hands-on involvement.
