For years, housing segregation, redlining, and other forms of systemic oppression have kept white and black communities apart. This social separation makes it far too easy for white people to ignore the benefits of their race and remain ignorant to the realities of systemic racism.
In recent years, many white Americans have chosen to ignore race and try “not to see color.” This passivity is inviting white people to remain blind to the vast inequities still being perpetuated by the infrastructure of racism in our country, which was constructed over a span of centuries and becomes deeply entrenched in all aspects of American life.
Friendships can’t be forced. That’s why we are helping foster organic connection through passions and shared interests. Whatever it is that fires your imagination is a connection point through which meaningful relationships are sparked.
The LoveBolt is creating and sponsoring resources that will invite you to grow your racial fluency, grow your perspective, and charge you up to create change. We are highlighting the work of black artists and moving out of apathy and into action.
The LoveBolt’s grand vision is to systemic racism ended in ONE generation. To accomplish this, we encourage each member of LoveBolt Agency to work to develop a personal social justice action plan that is tailored to their specific interests, skill set, and personality type.
“Joining the LoveBolt” will add you to our monthly newsletter and ensure you stay up to date with upcoming events and other organizational updates. We greatly appreciate your support!
