WHO WE ARE
RESOURCING RADICAL JUSTICE
IS A FUNDERS COLLECTIVE
BLACK LIBERATION AS THE PATH
TO A THRIVING GREATER WASHINGTON REGION
We believe that all Black lives matter, and that by centering those who are historically and contemporarily marginalized in the creation of solutions, we all move closer to shared freedom. This means that our collective’s philosophy is based in centering all Black people: Black women and girls, Black LGBTQ folks, Black trans folks, Black immigrants, Black workers, Black Muslims, Black Latinx folks, Black disabled folks, Black survivors of violence, particularly the violence of state actors, institutions, and the carceral system, and Black folks who live at the intersections of many of these identities, as the keystone to our mutual liberation.

Work is done by involving all members of the group
“Collective” honors the Black tradition of working together for mutual benefit
