Community Organizing for Racial Equity has a mission to create a culture of equity by builsing stronger communities through education, restoration, and community organizing.



At CORE we envision strong communities rooted in collective power liberating themselves and transforming their institutions for racial equity.

We cannot begin to think we can do this work in isolation or without community leading the way. I am not a community advocate - I am a community organizer. Building upon the existing strengths and resilience of our communities is how I do the work.
