  • We believe that despite past gains towards equal rights, the persistent manifestations of racism and discrimination necessitates a movement of people with a desire for change.
  • We believe that as individuals whose very identities and experiences have challenged society's traditional notions of race, it is important to create a space to continue challenging those notions towards creating a more inclusive and fair society.
  • We believe in an all-inclusive society, where all individuals are afforded the dignity and autonomy to identify themselves in the ways they believe represent them.
  • We believe that identity is not fixed, but rather developed and decided through the influence of history, context, and personal experience.
  • We believe that although race does not exist biologically, its consequences are real and we are committed to working to change them.
  • We believe that discovering and educating ourselves are the first steps towards creating the change we want to see in society.
  • We believe in creating dialogue around race and identity amongst diverse communities.
  • We believe that it is important to go beyond the specific concerns of the mixed community in order to take collective action in challenging discrimination on a larger scale.
