The Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture is committed to working to dismantle and heal the racism in our American and world culture.  Our antiracism actions have included:

  • support of recent annual community education events around Martin Luther King Jr Day
  • support of organizations working to make Black Lives Matter
  • committing ourselves publicly to working for racial equity with the display of a Black Lives Matter banner, and a pride flag that explicitly includes black and brown stripes to recognize the special challenges for queer people of color
  • regular speakers to educate ourselves and others on related antiracism and anti-oppression issues
  • participating in actions and protests against the extrajudicial killing of Black men and women
  • supporting coalitions on racial justice.  Some members of the Society are active in North Bronx Racial Justice, and have helped plan many of their major events
  • workshops for adults and curriculum for children that is racially inclusive and educates about how to be actively antiracist
  • hosting an interfaith book discussion group on antiracism, history of racism, and related topics of racial justice
  • commitment to inclusiveness, welcoming, and diversity within our own community, including continued examination of our own operations and internal culture
