Working for Racial Equality (WRE) is a local organization based in Archuleta County. The overarching mission of WRE is to expose racism and take action to stop it.
WRE has members who have personally experienced the negative impacts of racism and members who have not. Because these two lived experiences are incredibly different, WRE meetings include: implementation of action items to be part of the leadership of marginalized voices and education about what it means to be an ally.
WRE members examine beliefs, fears and biases that perpetuate racism. Through education, book and article discussions, as well as personal sharing, members explore historical and current racism.
WRE meets on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. via Zoom. The meetings are open to the public. To get more information and the Zoom link, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
